Carbon Monoxide (CO) is no joke. It is an odorless, colorless gas that can kill you. CO is found in fumes produced any time you burn fuel in cars or trucks, small engines, stoves, lanterns, grills, fireplaces, gas ranges, or furnaces. CO can build up indoors and poison people and animals who breathe it. Learn more about CO and view unintentional poisoning data on the Tracking Network today.
