Food Safety Management Department at Dubai Municipality’s response on the rumor of Pepsi Contamination:
The rumor is a scorn for people because HIV is not transmitted through food.
According to the World Health Organization, the transmission of this disease can only happen through:
- Blood, by co-use of needles, injections, cotton or transfusions.
- Sexual intercourse.
- AIDS transmit from pregnant mothers to children.
Therefore, HIV is not transmitted through food or drink altogether
