Children in critical condition after consuming apple juice at a restaurant


Richard Zaragoza, Jr. was celebrating his 10th birthday  Both Ginaya, 4, and the birthday boy ordered apple juice and the server brought it to them in cups, which was different. “Any other time that they brought the apple juice to us they would bring a styrofoam cup with ice and a separate drink so you can open and pour it if you want to.” Both children fell critically ill almost immediately after drinking the tainted beverage. They were throwing up blood and were rushed to Hershey Medical Center, in the intensive care. The kids had severe burns of the mouth and throat. The children are yet in critical but stable condition. The owner of the restaurant bought the apple juice from a local supermarket. East Lampeter Township Police are investigating.
