New Mom Tested Positive for Drugs in Labor After Eating Poppy Seed Bagel

This story is wild... I always thought this was an urban legend, but apparently it's real!

Elizabeth Eden was pregnant, and on the morning of her due date she stopped by her favorite local deli for her favorite breakfast: an everything bagel with strawberry cream cheese.

Later that day, she went into labor! While she was in labor at St. Joseph Medical Center, she was tested for drugs, and shocked when the results came back positive. Doctors turned Elizabeth over to the state and immediately after giving birth her newborn daughter was removed from her care for five days. State social workers continued to check on the family for weeks.
