Says right there how that was handled. Did you read it?The CPSC is looking at gas stoves because of studies that say things like this: Our meta-analyses suggest that children living in a home with gas cooking have a 42% increased risk of having current asthma, a 24% increased risk of lifetime asthma and an overall 32% increased risk of having current and lifetime asthma; per 15 ppb increase in indoor NO2 level, children have a 15% increased risk of having current wheeze.

I have to wonder if they will also look into unvented gas heaters. I don't know if it is still the case, but the user manual for some of them used to say you needed to open a window when they were operating.
