1/24/17 Sapona Plastics issues notice regarding stainless steel fiber grill cleaning brushes manufactured by the company.
Please note that Sapona Plastics labels all stainless steel fiber grill brushes we manufacture with the following warning instructions:
Caution: Use only on cold grills. After cleaning the grill, and before cooking: Ensure the grilling surface is clean of all foreign objects, including any grill brush wires. Keep all food away from the grill and grill area until all grill cleaning is completed. Grill brushes will wear out from use and should be replaced when worn. It is recommended the grill brush be replaced anually to avoid excessive wear and tear that can degrade the brush.
Precaucion! Usar solamente en parrillas frias.
Despues de limpiar la parrilla y antes de asar: Asegurese de que la superficie de la parrilla este libre de todos los objetos extranos, incluyendo cualquier cepillo de alambre para parrilla. Mantenga toda la comida lejos de la parrilla y el area de la parilla, hasta que haya completado toda la lipieza de la parrilla. Los cepillos para parrilla se deben reemplazar cuando esten desgastados.
