CARBON MONOXIDE (CO) HAZARD

A buildup of CO fumes is toxic and can be fatal. Carbon Monoxide is a colorless, odorless gas produced during combustion of wood, coal, oil, gas and by other fuel burning appliances. It is important to have a proper draft and adequate ventilation when using any EcoZoom stove.
