Sandra Lee was admitted to hospital Tuesday night for treatment of complications from her recent double mastectomy.
The 49-year-old Food Network star developed a buildup of fluids and is expected to be monitored in hospital for a couple of days, the Associated Press reported.
Lee underwent the double mastectomy in May after being diagnosed with breast cancer.
A person close to Lee's family confirmed her hospitalization, but wasn't authorized to speak about Lee's medical condition and spoke on condition of anonymity, the AP reported.

U.S. food services giant Aramark says it will develop healthier meals for its clients.

Aramark is working with the American Heart Association to reduce fat and salt in its meals by 20 percent by 2020, and said it will increase the amount of fruits, vegetables and whole grains by the same amount.
