Mom Tests Positive For Opiates After Eating Bagel
Does life imitate art or is it the other way around?
The plot line of a “Seinfeld” episode took place in Maryland when a mother tested positive for opiates after eating a poppy seed bagel.
Elizabeth Eden was in labor when doctors informed her of the test results and reported her to the state.
Thankfully Eden explained the situation to her assigned caseworker and the file was closed. The Federal Institute for Risk Assessment admits that there are morphine levels in poppy seeds and it advises against excessive consumption, particularly during pregnancy.
