Grenier has been added to the touring party due to doubts over the fitness of Manchester City midfielder Samir Nasri, although the exact problem with the 25-year-old was not clarified.
Nasri has been in New York with English Premier League side City and played in two games against Chelsea, winning 4-3 and 5-3.
He had been recalled to the national side after a year-long absence following a three-game international ban for his behaviour during Euro 2012.
A statement on the French football federation's website, www.fff.fr, said: "Because of doubts on Samir Nasri's health after Manchester City's two games in the United States, Didier Deschamps has called up Clement Grenier."
France play Uruguay on June 5 and Brazil on June 9.
