Baby Wash Products found to contain cannabinoid immunoassay
Researchers at the University of North Carolina published an article in Clinical Biochemistry  which found Baby wash products could cause false drug test results. Newborn drug screening has a significant implications in both the healthcare and legal domains, on occasion resulting in involvement by social services or false child abuse allegations. The accuracy of the screening results is therefore essential. This research highlights reasons why false positive cannabinoid (THC) screening results may have occurred. Researchers identified commonly used soap and wash products used for newborn and infant care as potential causes of false positive THC screening results.
