McDonald's apologized to a customer in China after the customer was accidentally served dishwashing detergent instead of Coca-Cola, according to reports.

The woman experienced a burning sensation in her esophagus and stomach after drinking a Coke her boyfriend bought and was admitted to hospital, reports the Chinese-language Beijing News.

"This has caused great harm to me and my girlfriend. My girlfriend is still receiving treatment in hospital," said Mr Liu, who ordered meals to go at the restaurant on Jan. 16.
