PSR Calls for Gas Stoves Hearing March 24, 2022
PSR is joining with allies to ask Congress to hold a hearing on health harms from gas stoves. Gas stoves emit health-harming pollutants, including nitrogen dioxide, that can exacerbate pre-existing respiratory illnesses and cause asthma in children. By calling for a congressional hearing, we hope to highlight the health and safety issues posed by gas stove pollution and explore actions the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission could take to protect public health.
