Hidden danger of grilling out...

Last winter, a team of doctors at Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children in Delaware treated a 16-year-old girl who had a sharp pain in one spot of her abdomen. Although the doctors suspected she had swallowed something, they were surprised when they pulled out a wire bristle from a grill brush during surgery.

It started to make sense when the doctors thought...


Story highlights:
- About 130 people a year in the United States go to the ER because they swallowed a wire bristle from a grill brush

- Although grill brush injuries are uncommon, they might require surgery and cause infections

- Experts recommend using nylon brushes or wire mesh brushes instead of brushes with wire bristles

I use the POS tool that came with the egg.  Seems to work.
