A mother was arrested after she shared a video on social media of her daughter licking and then returning a tongue depressor in a Florida doctor's office

It shows Ward's daughter remove the lid from a jar of tongue depressors, take one out, lick it and put it back. Then she licks it and puts it back in the box on the shelf.

Something says the caption, "don't tell me how to live my life", won't hold up in court.

Cori Ward, 30, faces a charge of tampering with a consumer product without regard for possible death/bodily injury, according to the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office.

"I am not a bad mother", she wrote.

The medical center released a statement saying it has removed all materials from the room in the video and sanitized the entire facility.

And she insisted that she had no intention of the video going viral, claiming to have circulated it to a few close friends - one of whom later made it public. The recent trend has resulted in the arrest of several customers who filmed themselves licking ice cream and other items in stores and returning them to the shelf, and then sharing the footage online.

Ward later told News4Jax that she's afraid of being taken away from her five children.

"I posted it on my personal Snapchat with my 20 something "friends" where someone allowed another person to video it", Ward said in the comment.

On Wednesday, Ward told WJAX she understood why people were upset by her video and apologized.

It was filmed Tuesday inside an exam room at a medical center for kids and families near Jacksonville. I was completely surprised and shocked that she would even put something like that out there to be seen.

"The risk of saliva transmitting disease is very small", Michael Benninger, a doctor at the clinic, said in a 2016 article.

The medical centre issued a statement in response to the video. "Each year, we serve thousands of patients, and providing quality care and ensuring their safety is our top priority".

The video of the incident went viral, drawing horror from people on social media.

The video shows the man, identified in news reports as Lenise Martin III, licking the ice cream at a supermarket in Louisiana.
