It is low risk so point taken. I actually thought they stopped making them but apparently not.gr8dlr wrote: ↑ I think the brush that is problematic is the plastic handled ones with wire bristles. If you use those on a hot grill the plastic can melt a bit and release the bristles. I use the Triangle grill brush to clean stuff and then wipe it down with a rag to get black burnt grease off and then oil grates with greased paper towel - the rag and paper towel will knock off anything if anything ever got released.

Considering the number of times ppl grill, the probability of a wire bristle coming off and it getting into your food is extremely low risk IMO. You cannot eliminate all risks, so I don't believe fearing a wire brush is justified. Like anything there's some caution that must be exercised.
