A Florida mother was arrested on Thursday after it was recorded that her underage daughter licked a tongue depressor and returned it to a doctor's office in Jacksonville with unused spatulas.
Cori E. Ward, 30, was arrested for tampering with a consumer product without regard to possible death or personal injury, according to jail records of the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office. Ward is not eligible for parole and must be brought to trial on Friday.
Ward posted a social media video Tuesday featuring her daughter tucking the licked tongue depressor back into the other tongue depressors at the All About Kids & Families Medical Center, according to NBC's Daughter WTLV.
The mother defended herself on Facebook before apparently canceling her account, and implied that the materials her children were using while waiting for medical appointments were either all cleansed or thrown away.
"The video does not show that the items were thrown away or anything else that happened," Ward wrote. "I posted this on my personal Snapchat with my 20 friends, where someone else allowed someone to film it, but I did not post it as a challenge or whatever on Facebook or YouTube."
