If you've heard anything about the danger of BBQ wire-bristle brushes, you may want to look at investing in a different kind of brush. It's been in the news for the last couple of years and apparently, there have been 9 reported incidents of injury from these brushes. The strange thing was, that even after all the reports, I went on a hunt last summer and couldn't find a proper replacement for a wire brush anywhere and several stores were still selling only wire brushes!Thankfully, after years of safety warnings and reports of injuries from wire-bristle brushes used to clean barbecue grills, Health Canada has begun a risk assessment that could potentially stop the sale of the brushes. You can Read this Health Canada report for more information.I was very happy to have finally find a proper replacement (affiliate links)
