New mother tests positive for opiates after eating poppy seed bagel

U.S. & World

A new mother experienced a nightmare recently in New York. After she tested positive for opiates, the hospital called authorities.

She was temporarily separated from her newborn baby after less than a day. It appears the test result was a false positive.  It looks like it was all because of a poppy seed bagel.

Baby Carter Dominguez and mom Elizabeth are enjoying time at their town of Tonawanda home a week after Carter was brought into the world.

But it’s the journey here and what Elizabeth ate before she gave birth that’s made this new mom’s experience anything but easy.
