Elizabeth Eden's newborn baby was kept in hospital for five days after her daughter was born, and it was all thanks to her mother's choice of snack before going into labour.

Elizabeth was reported to Maryland State and had her newborn separated from her and sent to Baltimore hospital, earlier this year.

According to various reports, she was assigned a caseworker, but got her tot back due to recollecting a school health class, where she learned poppy seeds can give false readings for the pharmaceutical drug.

According to the Federal Institute for Risk Assessment, excessive consumption of poppy seeds, especially during pregnancy, should be avoided until the morphine level in the seeds is lowered.
