Lumber Liquidators Stock Plunges After CDC Releases Revised Report

Lumber Liquidators stock is plunging in trading after a revised report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The CDC says people exposed to certain types of the company’s laminate flooring are three times more likely to get cancer than previously thought.

The original report used an incorrect value for ceiling height.

The CDC now estimates the risk of cancer at 6 to 30 cases per 100,000 people.

The previous estimate was 2 to 9 cases per 100,000 people.

The CDC says people should do what they can to reduce their exposure.
