CPSC ponders skewering charcoal labels
Backyard barbecues are a time-honored American tradition, but they can be dangerous. Improper use of charcoal products in grills and hibachis kill an average of 26 people a year and injure another 400.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) wants to do something to reduce the danger. It has proposed changing the labeling requirements for retail containers of charcoal intended for cooking to warn of the hazards of carbon monoxide from using the product in confined spaces. CPSC is proposing that the warning appear in a more noticeable easier to read format including a pictogram.
