A McDonald's franchise in Alberta, Canada has apologized after one of its customer was reportedly served a latte that had cleaning fluid in it.

The mum had stopped at a McDonald's drive-thru in Lethbridge in Alberta province and was forced to pull over on the side of the road to spit out the coffee and rinse her mouth with water.

Brown didn't address that point in his statement, when explaining how Douglas ended up with the chemicals in her cup.

"The feeling of the moment that I felt in my mouth was an immediate reaction of a burning, fuzzy feeling, my tongue felt fuzzy, and my mouth felt kind of, nearly numb", Douglas said.

'I opened up the lid of the coffee and out pours this pungent smell of chemical.

Douglas, who is eight months pregnant with her third child, spat out the solution when she tasted that it wasn't coffee and contacted the Alberta Health Services Health Link, who transferred her to poison control.

"Causes serious eye irritation".

But the milk in her drink was mixed with cleaning fluid.

Demi Lovato's Assistant Thought She Was 'Dead' After Apparent Overdose
TMZ reports that Demi Lovato was in such poor health when she overdosed that her assistant thought she had died. Paramedics later arrived and administered Narcan, a drug that counters the affects of opioids.

Dan Brown, the owner of the McDonald's franchise, issued a statement to the publication - as he confirmed they had been in touch with Ms Douglas about the situation.

"What happened is that the machine was being cleaned as it is every morning".

She has told news outlets she saw her family doctor to make sure she was OK - she is - and she feels lucky that she didn't actually swallow the liquid.

"As a mother, I want to make sure I have voice and that I'm being heard in terms of the safety of consumers", Douglas said.

Brown said a health department official had come by the restaurant, but no further investigation was under way.

While she's expected to be OK, Douglas said she's chose to come forward in hopes that something like this doesn't happen again.

She immediately returned to the store and informed management about the problem and soon learned that the machine that made her drink had still been hooked up to cleaning equipment. She said she hoped her experience could be used as a learning tool to bring awareness to the chain about enforcing proper procedures or perhaps improving employee training.
