- Xuhua Zhou, who raised the original red flag on Lumber Liquidators' floors back in 2013, says Lowe's (NYSE:LOW) floors are riddled with the same formaldehyde issues that sent LL's stock into a tailspin after the infamous 60 Minutes segment on March 1.
- Independent tests show that one of Lowe's floors scores 10x the allowed formaldehyde threshold. To put that in context, 60 Minutes tested 31 samples from Lumber Liquidators; Lowe's Chocolate Cherry Hickory would have been the third worst of all 31 samples. The results from Lowe's were 1.134 ppm. The CARB 2 threshold is 0.11 ppm.
- 60 Minutes seems to have taken Global Community Monitor's testing of Home Depot (NYSE:HD) and Lowe's products at face value, and did no independent testing. Still, Zhou's research suggests that Home Depot's flooring is CARB 2 compliant.
