In North Philadelphia, a man and a woman were hospitalized for carbon monoxide poisoning after being overcome by toxic fumes in their home. On Wednesday night around 7:30 pm, the two were brought to Episcopal Hospital for treatment and should recover. Firefighters on the scene suspect a faulty heater was the cause.
Defective products and equipment could appear to work until an unfortunate accident occurs like dangerous fumes discharging or an unexpected fire igniting. Depending on the severity of the fire and toxicity of the fumes, personal injuries or even fatalities can occur. Companies have a responsibility to provide products that are safe and sanitary to consumers.
