LaPlace attorney files class action against flooring company

NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) - People in Louisiana worried about chemicals in their flooring have slapped Lumber Liquidators with a class-action lawsuit.

Laplace attorney Daniel Becnel filed the lawsuit Friday over Chinese laminate flooring sold by the flooring company.

Stock prices for Lumber Liquidators plummeted after a "60 Minutes" report showed formaldehyde in some flooring was triple the safe level set by California. Formaldehyde is a chemical linked to cancer.

Lumber Liquidators said it stands by its products.
