When you clean tap lines, flush the cleaner out of the lines. It’s that simple. Business traveler Justin Grogg found that out when he ordered a Budweiser at the Dallas Red Lobster. Early that morning, the taps lines were cleaned at the restaurant, however some of the potassium hydroxide used as cleaner was left in the line. His throat and stomach immediately started burning, prompting a hospital visit.
The damage was minor, but now he is seeking $50,000 – $100,000 dollars in damages. Ouch. Darden Restaurants owns Red Lobster, plus other notables Longhorn Steakhouse, Seasons 52, Capital Grill, and Yard House.
