Misuse of a BBQ grill, can kill!

This European carbon monoxide campaign is to raise awareness that portable, and disposable, barbecues can be very dangerous when not used under the correct conditions. Even when cooling, or smouldering, they emit large quantities of carbon monoxide (CO) - a lethal gas that can kill within a few minutes.


In partnership with ANEC - The European consumer voice in standardisation and Consumer Safety International (CSI).
