Biden Administration Backs Off Gas Stove Ban After Nationwide Backlash

The chairman of the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said Wednesday that the agency isn’t seeking to ban gas stoves but is instead looking for ways to make them safer, addressing concerns that the government could force households to switch to electric cooking. “To be clear, I am not looking to ban gas stoves and the CPSC has no proceeding to do so,” said Chairman Alexander Hoehn-Saric. He said the CPSC is researching emissions from stoves and “actively engaged in strengthening voluntary safety standards.”
