Wire bristle barbeque brushes are a dangerous product and should not be sold in Canada. All major retailers and e-tailers should voluntarily stop their sale and switch to safer products.

There are better and safer alternatives than these often cheap 'made in China' health hazards though even "premium" brushes from known brands pose this risk.
Let's make summer 2016 the last one we've seen those health hazards come close to the food we serve to friends and family.
What's the issue?
The wires can easily break and get dislodged from the brush while cleaning a barbeque. Since these are small wire pieces that are hard to see (especially when there's burnt food remains on the grill) and can quite easily end up on and in food (like hamburgers). People can really get hurt when they have these wires enter their tongue, throat or even reach their digestive system!
This can be painful, dangerous and extremely difficult to remove with surgery. Sometimes not possible to remove with surgery at all!
Also - these wires also have potentially dangerous environmental effects.
