Take precautions against carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning.

CO is the leading cause of poisoning deaths in the U.S. In a five-year span between 2006 and 2010, 60 Minnesotans died from CO poisoning.

Most recently, a man from Cleveland, Minnesota became a victim of CO poisoning as he and a friend worked on a tractor in an enclosed space.
