DENVER, CO. -- Denver Fire Chief, Jim Sestrich, blames a local couples' death on their new anti-flatulent blanket manufactured by the Better Relations Blanket Company.
The blanket, made with activated charcoal fabric similar to that used in military chemical suits is constructed to absorb noxious odors. But, apparently it worked too well, preventing the couple from noticing the smell of gas leaking from their bedroom fireplace.
As a result, they succumbed to the fumes.
For safety sake, Sestrich cautioned against the consumption of fried foods and broccoli before bedtime rather than using and suffering the possible hazards of anti odor blankets.
