The Detroit Free Press and The Detroit News report Tuesday that Applebee’s will pour juice for children from single-serve containers at the table starting this week. Applebee’s also plans to retrain workers.

Madison Heights police say the drink mislabeled as apple juice was actually a leftover mixed drink combination.

Fifteen-month-old Dominic Dill-Reese’s mother ordered her son a kid’s meal and asked for apple juice as the beverage Friday afternoon. Dominic was checked out by doctors, and the family was told the child’s blood alcohol level was .10 percent. That’s over the legal limit for an adult driver.

Dominic is expected to be OK.
