Is it safe to cook on the Foreman grill, if the coating has come off?

I would contact the company and find out if they will replace this if it is fairly new. (07/05/2009)

Non-stick cooking surfaces are dangerous to our health! Please read this link below. Manufacturers must stop making it by 2015! http://lowfatcooking.about.com/od/healthandfitness/a/nonstickpans.htm

In early 2006 the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) asked eight American companies, including DuPont, maker of Teflon-brand nonstick cookware, to work towards the elimination of PFOA "which they labeled a likely carcinogen"by 2015. PFOA has been shown to cause cancer, low birth weight and a suppressed immune system in laboratory animals exposed to high doses of PFOA.

Studies have shown the chemical to be present at low levels in the bloodstream of 9 out of 10 Americans, and in the blood of most newborns. And although the effects of PFOA at lower doses in humans are disputed, there does seem to be a link between PFOA and raised levels of cholesterol. More seriously, some people have claimed that PFOA exposure caused birth defects in babies born to mothers working at a Teflon plant in the early 1980s.
