CDC Apologizes For Muffin Scare
Take a look at this poppy seed muffin. Looks appetizing, doesn't it? Well, it may have ticks in it. Can you spot them?
To demonstrate that people do not know what a tick looks like, or how small they can be, the CDC released a photo with five ticks embedded in the muffin. Most people are having trouble digesting the news that the speckles are not all poppy seeds - but ticks!
The CDC has apologized for the tweet and tick scare; but they are raising awareness for all the right things. People need to know how tiny ticks can be; and this is why performing thorough tick checks on yourself after outdoor activity is very important.
