Restaurant worker mistakes industrial cleaner for sugar....

SALT LAKE CITY—An industrial cleaning solution that ended up in tea that a woman drank at a Utah restaurant was unintentionally mixed into a bag of sugar a month earlier, authorities said Friday.
South Jordan Cpl. Sam Winkler said a former employee told authorities the mixing of the cleaning product into the sugar bag happened July 5.
On Sunday, a worker took large quantities of the substance thought to be sugar and poured it into the iced-tea dispenser, he said.
A 67-year-old customer, Jan Harding, drank the tea that day at Dickey’s Barbecue in South Jordan, severely burning her esophagus and mouth. She remained hospitalized this weekend in critical condition.
The cleaning product is meant for degreasing deep fryers and contains the odorless chemical lye, the active ingredient in drain cleaners.


So it was unintentionally mixed a month earlier and nobody thought it wise to fix that problem?

Ya.. Some lawyer's going to make a small fortune off this one...

And it took 5 weeks for this to be a problem.

If they used sugar on the deep fryer, it must be sticky by now.
