Elizabeth Mort had a baby at Jameson Hospital in New Castle, Pennsylvania. Jameson Hospital has a policy of drug testing mothers who give birth there, and Mort tested positive after consuming an everything bagel from Dunkin Donuts that contained poppy seeds.

According to reports, Lawrence County Children and Youth Services (LCCYS) kept the baby for five days without bothering to investigate, while the mother and father were left in the dark. What a harrowing experience.
