Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
You would bear the burden of proof that this caused a false positive. There is no conclusive proof that carinivora causes any false positive tests, so you need to get a retest on your sample to seek to see whether or not the carinivora can even be detected in the sample on its own. They will need to a mass spectrum analysis to separate the compounds to determine if the reading came from the natural supplement.
