Bernanke warns against premature policy tightening

US Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke acknowledged the risks of the Fed's low interest-rate policy Wednesday but warned that tightening policy now could stall the US recovery.

"A premature tightening of monetary policy could lead interest rates to rise temporarily but would also carry a substantial risk of slowing or ending the economic recovery and causing inflation to fall further," he said in a statement to Congress.
