Mom's Child Taken Away After Failed Drug Test; Poppy Seed Bagel Blamed

A New Castle, PA. woman said her child was taken away from her after the results of a drug test came back wrong.

The child was returned after she tested again later and passed.

Is this crazy or what?!

    Eeek You think they would have re-tested her first before taking the child away.

    It's insane. CPS has too many rights as far as I'm concerned.

    That is totally BS. They should've done further testing. If I were here I would start some legal action.

      According to the article that's in the works:
      The ACLU is representing Mort. Rose said they are working toward filing a civil rights lawsuit on her behalf.

    I used to love eating lemon poppy seed bread but after watching the episode of Mythbusters where they find poppy seeds give false positives, I stopped. I can't believe it actually happened to someone.

      The first time I heard about poppy seed bagels giving out false positives was a few years ago in Vegas when I was listening to some parolees talking amongst each other about this cause one of them had just tested positive after eating one.

      But It never occurred to me that someones child would be taken away after this.

      However when children are involved it's always remove the child 1st and ask questions later!

    That reminds me of that Seinfeld episode where Elaine tested positive for Opium because of poppy seeds. I stopped eating them after that.
