False Positives with Wonder Bread, Dr. Pepper and smartphone radio inference raise questions about Intoxilyzer in Kansas

November 19, 2011. A Kansas local investigative news special joins the drumbeat of States including Florida and Ohio questioning breath test results from the Intoxilyzer manufactured by CMI, Inc. of Kentucky.  The story raised questions about false positives with mouth alcohol, wonder bread, Dr. Pepper soft drinks, and smartphone radio frequency interference.  Kansas uses the Intoxilyzer 8000 which is the more advanced version of the Intoxilyzer 5000 which is used in Georgia. An Intoxilyzer 5000 is so outdated that government surplus machines can be purchased on eBay for as little as $120.00.
