I never was aware that this is happening. If carbon monoxide can kill; why is it even used?
As most everything else, it comes down to money instead of worrying about the population.

I have yet to see a package stateing that the product was irradiated, but it goes on all the time. I go by one of the places they irradiate food at several times a day.(I think my vehicle is starting to glow in the dark,lol)(I'm jokeing about the vehicle!)
