Making the rounds via SMS, Facebook, and Twitter:

Dont drink the pepsi products they are contaminated from blood from a HIV person
I received a text saying please don't drink Pepsi a worker put his blood (HIV +) into some bottles. Be careful.

False on two counts:

  1. There have been no reports in any reliable source of Pepsi products contaminated with blood or other bodily fluids.
  2. According to the Centers for Disease Control, the AIDS virus is short-lived outside the human body and poses no risk if consumed. Read the details...

(19) chubbyd says:

If nobody has worked this out yet, PEPSI is an acronymn used by medics for a course of treatment given immediately after someone suspects he or she may have been exposed to the virus. It has nothing to do with Pepsi Cola.

Post Exposure Prophylactic following Sexual Intercourse.

A while ago, we had our christmas party and someone brought 2 bottles of Pepsi. We were just pouring glasses when someone recalled this rumor. As a result, we spilled our drinks.. What a waste…

(30) Miranda Resmond says:

Noooooo! This isn’t true! Actually, some time ago, I just drank a cup of pepsi and I’m just feeling fine…. Nothing has happened to me!!! Okay guys, think practically…. FACE THE FACT! This rumor has been going on from JULY 2011… Some ppl might not have believed in this… So they would’ve drank pepsi or coke….. Example my daddy! He drinks at least 2 cups of pepsi every 5 days…. He’s been doing this for 5 months….. But he is just normal….. There are many ppl who drink pepsi or coke every DAY…. And wouldn’t this have been flash news? Wouldn’t this be a noted epidemic? These r all just rumours! Don’t believe this… Websites like hoax-slayer and urban legends…. Nobody says there is HIV in pepsi or coke….. Of course…. These both aren’t healthy…. But there isn’t any harm in drinking it! PLEASE BELIEVE ME!
