Sorry to bump an old thread, but Murphy JUST did this and now I'm kind of freaking out. Not something I even think about since I never cook meat but my roommate had left the grill grease catcher thing...and Murph got to it. Now I'm totally freaking out....ugh!Finn got on the counter as a pup (not that he wouldn't now, if it was there ) and cleaned out the container that catches the grease on the George Foreman grill. I was worried about pancreatitus, too. But he was fine, never showed any symptoms.
I hope the same for you.
