A woman is in critical condition after drinking sweet tea laced with a lye-based cleaner. According to Fox13, 67-year-old Jan Harding was eating at a Dickey’s Barbecue Pit in South Jordan, Utah with her husband after church last Sunday. The Salt Lake Tribune writes that the tea was accidentally mixed with an industrial cleaning chemical called Clean Force Fryer Cleaner that is commonly used to clean deep fryers. Harding suffered severed burns in her throat and mouth was taken to the hospital on Sunday. She was later flown to the University of Utah’s burn center where she remains in critical condition and is unable to speak.
