I’m sure many of you are barbecuing on this hot and sunny holiday weekend, but beware of those wire brushes you use for cleaning as they pose a health risk!
From the article:
“Wire bristles from grill brushes can snap off, land on the grate and find their way into grilled meats, public health experts warn. If ingested, these bristles can tear up a person’s throat and digestive tract, causing potentially life-threatening injuries.”
What to do:
“Toss the wire brush in favor of a safer option. Grill-cleaning stones and bricks, bristle-free brushes made of metal coil, grill brushes with nylon bristles and aluminum foil are all safe alternatives then wiped down with a cloth and carefully inspected before food is cooked.”
Happy Memorial Day Weekend! ????
