Safety / Barbecue
Carbon Monoxide (CO) is a colourless, odourless and tasteless gas.
In homes and other enclosed spaces, carbon monoxide (CO) is dangerous; it can make you sick or, in extreme cases, cause brain damage and death.
CO poisoning symptoms include headache, shortness of breath, dizziness, drowsiness, watering and sore eyes, confusion, nausea and fatigue.
Even a small amount of CO is dangerous in your home, garage, vehicle, cottage, boat, recreational vehicle or tent. Children, people with heart and respiratory conditions, and the elderly, may be particularly sensitive to CO’s effects.
When shopping for propane appliances and CO detectors, always ask if the product is certified by an agency recognized in the province of use, such as the Canadian Standards Association (CSA) or Underwriters Laboratories of Canada (ULC).
