In a statement sent to ABC News, Lumber Liquidators said it supports the CDC findings but that the company thinks the new calculation "overestimates any potential health risks from these products, and we are encouraged that CDC is seeking a broader review of their conclusions".

U.S. health officials say people exposed to certain types of flooring made by Lumber Liquidators face a higher risk for cancer than previously thought. The CDC and the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry was notified February 13 of an error in its report released February 10, 2016, about the possible health effects from exposure to formaldehyde emitted from select laminate flooring samples.
The CDC claims that the estimated risk of cancer from laminate floors is six to 30 cases for every 100,000 people. The CDC, in a notice on its website dated February 18, said it had used an incorrect value to calculate ceiling height in its previous report published on February 10.
It previously estimated two to nine cases for every 100,000 people. Health hazards related to Lumber Liquidators' toxic flooring could be higher than previously thought, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention officials said. The CDC says exposure to the revised formaldehyde levels in indoor air could cause increased symptoms and other respiratory issues for people with asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
