Fatal Dangers of Taking Disposable Barbecues into Enclosed Spaces

Trading Standards officers have warned homeowners that "Even when apparently cold, disposable barbecues continue to produce carbon monoxide and when this is breathed into the body, even in relatively small quantities, it prevents blood from providing essential oxygen to cells, tissues and organs. The advice given is very simple. Never take a used disposable barbecue into an enclosed space, even if it feels cold to the touch. When you’ve finished using a disposable barbecue it should be left outside until the following day and then disposed of appropriately.”

"People should NOT be tempted to use them for warmth or cooking as the weather drops in the evening by taking disposable barbecues into their tents, caravans and even conservatories."
