Can I fail a drug test because I ate a poppy seed muffin? I love poppy seed muffins. They are delicious. However, I've been told by folks that eating these delicious baked goods could lead me to test positive for opiates. My place of work distributes rand

Yes. Opiods, (opium, morphine and related narcotics) come from the poppy plant. The poppy seeds used on food are from a related plant. Though yummy they can make you test positive for opiods on a drug screen. This affect can last for 48 hours. There have been several cases of firings based on this finding which, though they were overturned later, caused untold woes. Best thing is to avoid.
No. . No. The current urine drug screening tests are not triggered by eating a poppy seed muffin.
