At least, that's the way her granddaughter tells it, and for purposes of this story, that's what matters.
How it began
In August, 2018, Karen was on vacation with her family in Hilton Head, South Carolina., and her 11-year-old granddaughter was excited to make dinner for all 12 people in the house.
A relevant fact to this story: A typical restaurant order of General Tso’s chicken is likely to contain as much sodium as you should consume in an entire day. But also, this wasn’t a typical restaurant order: Two bottles of soy sauce were purchased so that the dish could be prepared.
Karen noticed the saltiness of the dish but remembers that “when I went to bed that night, I was absolutely fine.”
