Manitoba Ag Days Wood Scraper Awareness
Manitoba Ag Days is excited to announce that patron’s purchasing 50/50 tickets at this year’s show will receive a complimentary BBQ scarper courtesy of Manitoba Ag Days and Shippam and Associates while supplies last.
This summer a young man from the Brandon area was enjoying a plate of ribs when unknown to himself or his parents, was accompanied with a wire from a BBQ scraper brush. This experience resulted in an unexpected trip to emergency and the wire successfully removed from his throat.
Incidents like this have made headlines over the past number of years with countless stories about injuries caused by ingesting wires from BBQ brushes. Canadian surgeons have spoken up and were urging people to not use wire brushes. The number of cases also prompted Health Canada to do a risk assessment review in 2017.
Manitoba Ag Days is happy to report the young man didn’t sustain any significant injuries but doesn’t want to see anyone else experience this severe discomfort; especially not within our farming community.” We urge everyone to discard their wire brushes and replace them with wood scrappers.” stated Andrea Guthrie, Manitoba Ag Days board member.
Manitoba Ag Days is a 3 day exposition of agricultural production expertise, technology, and equipment that attracts exhibitors and visitors from across Canada and North Central United States. Manitoba Ag Days 50/50 (LGCA-2406-RF-29591) takes places during the tradeshow held at Brandon’s Keystone Centre January 22- 24, 2019 with proceeds raised going towards the “Ag Day’s Gives Back Fund supporting rural initiatives and agriculture education across Manitoba.
