  • Doctor Delivers His 999th Baby (FAKE)
  • Family Finds Catheter In Their Ice Cream (REAL)

All a family in Quebec wanted was to celebrate the birth of a new baby with some chocolate-pecan ice cream. What they got instead was a health scare. The family opened the sealed, store bought ice cream and dug in...until new grandfather Jean Francoeur spit out what appeared to be a small section of a urinary catheter. Jean's son Samuel, who welcomed the new baby with his wife, and Samuel’s mother-in-law, Carol-Anne Christofferson, also enjoyed some dessert, but neither one had bitten into a foreign object. The three family members gave blood samples and received preventative treatment for HIV and hepatitis A, B and C. The blood tests won't come back for six months but in the meantime, Samuel and Carol-Anne must submit to testing every month, and Jean - every week. A rep for the ice cream company that caused all this drama said what companies always say in times like these: they're investigating, but this is an isolated incident.
