SALT LAKE CITY - The attorney for a Utah woman who nearly died after unknowingly drinking iced tea mixed with chemicals at a Utah restaurant says the family will enter into mediation with the business instead of immediately filing a lawsuit.

Salt Lake County Attorney Sim Gill announced Friday that no charges will be filed in the incident because prosecutors found no evidence of criminal wrongdoing.

Attorney Paxton Guymon tells The Associated Press that Jan Harding and her family respect the decision.

Guymon says they are tentatively scheduled to meet with Dickey's Barbecue representatives in November to see if they can reach a monetary agreement. He says the family also wants the restaurant chain to implement procedures to ensure nothing like this happens again.

The Dallas-based Dickey's Barbecue Restaurants Inc. didn't immediately comment.
