"Especially during flu season, you light the candles on the cake, and everybody sings 'Happy Birthday,' and then the one individual who is celebrating his birthday blows on the cake, and blows the candles out," Dr. Bert Eichold of the Mobile County (Ala.) Health Department said.
Eichold isn't the first to sound the alarm. Australia's National Health and Medical Research Council came out with guidelines this week for agencies who work with children: no candles on birthday cakes.
Think it's overkill? Consider a recent study at Clemson University that found 200 bacteria on a birthday cake before the candles were blown out.
"Up to 3,000 different bacteria were found on the cake after the child blows the candles out," Eichold said.
Eichold said he's not saying 'stop having birthday cakes and birthday candles and birthday parties.' It's part of growing up. But during flu season, you might want to keep in mind a few alternatives to blowing on that birthday cake.
"Why not have your birthday candles on a cupcake or just have a candle sitting down, sing 'Happy Birthday," blow the candle out, and eat the food?," Eichold said.
Because the birthday girl should be getting the gifts, not giving them.
Eichold said it's usually not a big deal, but precautions like this come into play during a strong flu season.

Bert Eichold, head of the Mobile County Health Department, lauded those moves, but said more is needed to protect lives and property.He specifically said that political leaders ought to address flood elevation levels.
After Katrina's massive storm surge, the Federal Emergency Management Agency broadened the areas in Mississippi and Louisiana that it said were susceptible to coastal flooding and ordered that new houses there be elevated several feet higher than before.
But the agency did nothing of significance in Alabama, and officials said it will be 2011 at the earliest before new flood-zone maps are available for the state.
Eichold said that shouldn't stop local governments from undertaking changes before then."If we're going to err, we should err on the side of being more protective of our citizens and not put persons at risk with their two most valuable possessions , their home and their families," he said.

Dr. Bert Eichold, Mobile County's health officer, urged further investigation in light of the apparent violations of the federal Clean Water Act and the threat to the county's drinking water supply.
"It will be very sad if a comprehensive federal investigation is not undertaken and prosecuted to the full extent of the law.This should include looking for all potential co-conspirators: those who had knowledge of violations and failed to report them along with those officials/professionals whose 'omissions' contributed to the violations," Eichold wrote, in response to questions from the Press-Register.
