"If you eat a poppy seed roll, it could give rise to a positive result on a urine drug test for morphine", Professor Johnston told the BBC.

The test result meant Eden's daughter had to stay in the hospital for five days while her mother was assigned a caseworker.

Luckily for the new mother, officials realized that this was a legitimate case of the poppy seed defense and closed her case.
