JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — A Florida mother faces a felony charge after video surfaced of her daughter licking a tongue depressor and putting it back in a container at a doctor's office.

Cori Ward, 30, appeared in court Friday on a charge of tampering with consumer product without regard for possible death or bodily injury.

On Tuesday video surfaced that appeared to show her daughter licking the tongue depressor then putting it back with other supplies at a Jacksonville doctor's office.

Ward's bail was set at $2,500. The judge ordered her not to contact the doctor's office where the incident took place and to stay off social media.
