I have been developing a website that requires an RSS feed grabber to display headlines on the from page from WordPress posts. All has been well, but when I came into the office this morning and loaded up the page every blog entry displayed through RSS was showing a hidden image tag following the copy. This issue is apparent in IE, Firefox, Chrome and Safari.

Test test. <img alt="" border="0" src="http://stats.wordpress.com/b.gif?host=niagaraknights.wordpress.com&blog=5395230&post=27&subd=niagaraknights&ref=&feed=1" />
This image tag doesn't reside in my code, nor does it reside in the test blog post. I deleted and rewrote several test posts to ensure that there was no hidden image, gave the JS a quick kick to refresh the feed and the <img> tag continued to show up. I found another site experiencing the same problem: http://daily.gigaom.com/.
Anyone have a clue?
