Experts warn East Texans to use caution on public grills
TYLER - We're told raccoons, bugs, and birds can all at some point or another land on a grill to eat off pieces of grilled meat. Which, that can present some problems for folks due to the diseases and bacteria that can be left behind.
Never fear, experts say, the grills are safe to cook your meat on it, as long as you take a few precautionary measures.
Bill Smart with Tyler State Park tells KETK, "What I suggest is to bring a wire brush with you. Scrape that stuff off and as long as these are hot then your not going to have a problem with sanitation."
