Braaing can be dangerous

Braaing can be dangerous. A new study by researchers at the University of Missouri School of Medicine found that since 2002 more than 1,600 folks arrived in US emergency rooms with barbecue-related injuries. The main culprit: wire-bristle grill brushes. When loose bristles from these brushes fall off during cleaning, they can easily make their way into food and cause injuries to the mouth, throat and tonsils. So while cleaning your braai utensils thoroughly is essential, make sure that none of the cleaning products end up on your chops.
