CDC: Tick-Bite Prevention, Education with Poppy Seeds

Ticks are notorious for being small, pesky, and potential causes of Lyme disease.

According to one study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, around 300,000 new cases of Lyme disease are diagnosed every year in the United States.

Twitter users complained the post ruined poppy seed muffins for them. The tweet also included a link to their website to learn about preventing tick bites.

Which ... fine, but now the CDC needs to put its best medical minds on the task of fixing the epidemic of poppy-seed PTSD it's created. "Can you spot all 5 ticks in this photo?" In fact, some of them are actually ticks.

But if generating buzz about tick bites was the CDC's goal all along, it's safe to say the agency does not regret the tweet.

Trump says ethanol exports could count toward USA biofuels quotas
But some merchant refiners, like PBF Energy and Valero Energy Corp, say it costs them hundreds of millions of dollars annually. That E15 gasoline, as it is known, now can't be sold during the summer in some areas where smog is a problem.

A social media post about ticks left some people ticked off.

Other people felt like the CDC's message wasn't very clear.

Eventually, the CDC official issued a tweet proclaiming - " Sorry we ticked some of you off! "Don't let a tick bite ruin your summer".

What may have seemed like a clever tweet to warn people about ticks, quickly backfired.

The CDC did not immediately reply to INSIDER's request for comment.
