There was an email from a Group ,of which I am a member, this morning that the Delhi Police that the soft drink Froot is contaminated with HIV Virus and
is not to be consumed.
It also stated that NDTV telecast a show on this.
I checked this with Hoaxslayer.com
The information given out is wrong.
Here is the analysis.
The story supposed to be an important message from Delhi police states that a worker from Frooti company has added his blood, contaminated with HIV (AIDS), and so, you should not drink any product of Frooti for the next few weeks. The story also claims that this public warning was shown on NDTV. However, all this is complete hoax.
Firstly, Delhi police did not issue any such warning, and neither did NDTV show this message. HIV can NOT spread through food contamination. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) clearly states that a person would not become infected with HIV even if he consumed food containing HIV infected blood.
“HIV does not live long outside the body. Even if small amounts of HIV-infected blood or semen was consumed, exposure to the air, heat from cooking, and stomach acid would destroy the virus. Therefore, there is no risk of contracting HIV from eating food.”
Therefore, it is quite clear that this message of Frooti containing HIV is yet another hoax to scare people in the name of health. This is in fact another version of an old hoax talking about HIV in Pepsi. The message need not be shared”
