IMPORTANT SAFETY N OtiCE
The California Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act requires the Governor of California to
publish a list of substances known to the state to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive
harm, and requires businesses to warn customers of potential exposure to such substances.
Gas appliances can cause minor exposure to four of these substances, namely benzene, carbon
monoxide, formaldehyde and soot, caused primarily by the incomplete combustion of natural gas.
Properly adjusted burners, indicated by a bluish rather than a yellow flame, will minimize incomplete
combustion. Exposure to these substances can be minimized by venting with an open window or
using a ventilation fan or hood.
