War on some drugs: Hospitals attack women for eating bagels, lawsuit says

"Two women have filed civil rights complaints against hospitals in Hackensack and Voorhees, alleging workers drug-tested them without their knowledge or consent after they went there to give birth.

"The tests resulted in false positives that prompted both hospitals to alert child welfare authorities, who then monitored each family for months even though there was no evidence of drug use or other wrongdoing, according to separate complaints filed last week ... In both cases, the women had eaten poppy seed bagels before going to the hospital, resulting in false-positive results, according to their complaints. In declaring their test results positive, the hospitals used laboratory levels dramatically lower than federal guidelines recommend, according to the complaints."
