Wire BBQ brush warning
I found this on another forum I frequent. It is a warning about wire BBQ brushes,I have had a wire lodged behind my back molar that I was able to dislodge. After reading this I realized it was more of a problem than I thought. Here is the post below.
I just wanted to put this out there.
A couple weeks ago my mother said she got a sharp pain in her throat after eating something from the BBQ. She went to the local hospital where they took x-rays of her neck but apparently the doctor didn't bother to look at them and sent her home with some antibiotics. The pain persisted and she wasn't able to eat anything other than yogurt and soup. After a week or so she finally went to her family doctor. This doctor looked at the x-rays and it showed a luminous strand lodged in her throat. My Mom was admitted to Columbia last night and is now waiting for surgery. Before going to the hospital they looked at the wire brush from the BBQ. The bristles were falling out.
I just googled this phenomenon and there's many cases of the bristles getting caught in people's throats and intestines causing complications, etc.
They recommend using a quality wood brush instead of the plastic ones, because they don't expand so much in the heat.
Just something to be aware of.
