Don't Swallow Grill-Cleaning Brush Bristles!

| Filed under: FoodHealthScary!

Grill Bristle

Sounds like an easy thing to remember, right? You've been doing that for years, right?

Well, it happens more often than you think, and completely by accident.

"How often," you might be wondering. Good question.

Often enough for the CDC to warn us about it!

There were SIX cases of it alone in a Providence, R.I. hospital that occurred between March 2011 and June 2012.

The CDC is warning doctors that the bristles are small and can be tough to see on X-rays and scans, SO THEY NEED TO FOCUS!

LOOK HARDER!

The major problem here is that the CDC doesn't know which brands to look out for, and which won't try and literally spike your meat.

So, just make sure you're knocking everything off before you put your meat on the heat, ya heard??

Oh, you're much more likely to get sick from eating undercooked meat or food poisoning, too. So… good luck with that!

GRILLING IS DANGEROUS!

(But so delicious! HA!)
