On her way to the hospital to give birth, Jamie, a New York mom, stopped at a coffee shop and ate a piece of lemon poppyseed bread. After her son Hunter was born, a doctor told Jamie that she had failed her drug test. The hospital called CPS and a child abuse investigation was opened.
According to Jamie, for the next 8 weeks, CPS made house visits and interviewed her two daughters and visited their school. Jamie also underwent drug counseling and testing and paid for it all herself. Hunter’s drug test did not show any signs of drugs.
Michael Peteson, manager of toxicology at ACM Medical Laboratory stated that, “From time to time a person who consumes a poppy seed product may end up with a positive opioid test and a confirmed positive for morphine or morphine and codeine.”
CPS ultimately found the suspicions to be “unfounded” and closed the investigation.
A CPS investigation can happen to anyone at any time. That is why we encourage families to join Heritage Defense to have an experienced attorney available 24/7 to defend your rights.
