A little known grilling hazard has resurfaced, and even sent a local teen to the hospital. It wasn't until doctors at Seattle Children’s performed an exploratory surgery that they were able to determine what was wrong with 16-year-old Tristan Beck. Beck had a single metal bristle from a grilling brush in his intestines.
