Wow! That's pretty unnerving especially since we just had pizza for supper. I use a grill pad on my grates, sometimes on the grill I will preheat and clean with wadded up newspaper. You'd be surprised how well paper works.

I got a wire stuck in my upper gum line. I always inspect my grill grates very carefully now.

Sounds like one need to look at the bottom side of the pizza they just ordered.

This last week I BBQed a chicken breast for the wife unit and I, before serving it ....................you guessed it. I found a wire from the brush sticking straight up in the breast. It must have stuck to the grill when I cleaned it then transferred itself to the chicken. I'm both happy and terrified that I found it. Brushes are in the garbage. NEVER again.

Thanks for this thread.

Not worth the chance.
Many other ways to clean grates and racks.
Brushes tossed.
Thanks for the heads up.
