CDC: Tick-Bite Prevention, Education with Poppy Seeds

Many Twitter users claimed the post ruined poppy seed muffins for them.

However, this is not just any muffin.

A social media post by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention about ticks has some people gagging over the sight of poppy seed muffins.

Unfortunately, few people were able to see past the stark realisation that ticks and poppy seeds were such kindred spirits to take home any serious tokens of medical advice. But the question "Can you spot all 5 ticks in this photo?" struck people as a little hostile, and perhaps even like a veiled threat. The tweet also included a link to their website to learn about preventing tick bites.

Can you find waldo in this pastry?

May begins the three-month span during which more people will get tick bites than any other in the United States, according to the CDC, and a 2016 study found ticks that carry Lyme disease present in almost half of all USA counties.
