What are the defects?

Recent research has revealed that the heat resistant strip located between the product handle and the main unit of the barbecue starter
chimney contains Chrysotile Asbestos (White Asbestos).

What are the hazards?

Australian Char has been advised that the Chrysotile Asbestos in this case is contained and non-friable (i.e. when dry, cannot be crumbled, pulverised or reduced to powder by hand pressure). The potential for airborne fibres during normal usage is minimal.
