Pentagon warns troops to back away from poppy seed bagels or risk failing drug tests

Recommended Posts

WASHINGTON – Back away from the baked goods, Doughboy.

That's the warning from the Pentagon to its 1.3 million active-duty soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines amid fresh concerns that tainted poppy seeds could prompt troops to pop hot on drug tests for codeine after eating bagels or muffins.

 "Recent data suggests certain poppy seeds varieties may have higher codeine contamination than previously reported," said the warning from Gilbert Cisneros, the Pentagon's top official for personnel.
