This act requi
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 cast
s of potential exposure to such substances. Gas appliances can
cause minor exposure to four of these substances, namely benzene, carbon monoxide,
formaldehy@ and soot, caused primarily by the incomplete combustion of natural gas
or LP fuels. Pr perly adjusted dryers will minimize incomplete combustion. Exposure to
these substan
s can be minimized further by properly venting the dryer to the outdoors.
