Gas stoves: Trade group 'concerned' over Energy Department's proposal on cooking appliances
Federal agency postulating a ban on gas stoves
Chef and restaurant owner Andrew Gruel discusses the government claiming that gas stoves cause health issues and considering a ban on ‘Fox Business Tonight.’
The Association of Home Appliance Manufacturers (AHAM) — a home appliance industry trade group — is arguing that the Department of Energy's (DOE) new efficiency standards for consumer cooking appliances are the "most stringent" standards they have ever seen.
On Wednesday, the Energy Department proposed new limitations on how much energy electric stove tops (both coil and smooth) and gas cooking tops may consume in a year. Around half of all models currently on the market would not comply with the proposed standards without modifications, a DOE spokesperson previously told FOX Business.
"We are very concerned this is another attempt to remove gas cooking products from the market," Jill Notini, spokesperson for the trade group, told FOX Business Friday.
