Carbon Monoxide

Happy New Year from the Law Offices of Joanne E. Mattiace! We want you and yours to be safe, today and always!

Winter is in full swing and temperatures have dropped way below freezing in much of the country, making it difficult to keep our homes on a nice warm temperature. This month, we want you to think about ways that you can protect yourself and your loved ones from carbon monoxide, an invisible, odorless, and potentially lethal gas.  Install carbon monoxide detectors in every level of your home (especially near bedrooms) and check the batteries regularly. Never use a generator or burn charcoal inside your home. For more information please visit the CPSC Carbon Monoxide information center. If you use a space heater, be sure to use it safely—away from draperies, paper, etc.

If you are a manufacturer, importer, distributor or retailer, do you know what your product safety responsibilities are? Don’t end up on the CPSC recall list; contact attorney Mattiace today, toll free, at 877-481-0734 for a free consultation.
