[PEPSI HIV STORY IS FAKE NEWS]

Investigations have revealed that the false Pepsi HIV story is not about Nigeria but a fake UK Metropolitan Police statement claiming the soft drink contained infected blood.

This has since been denied by the UK Metropolitan Police and there was no Sky News report on this false story.

Medical experts have assured Nigerians that there is no need to worry. Reason: The story is not true; and the HIV virus cannot survive up to five minutes outside human body.


According to a report first published by The Sun UK, Pepsi was hit by a sick hoax after a fake Met police statement was shared online claiming that the fizzy drink contained HIV-infected blood.

The message – falsely attributed to Met Police – claimed that Pepsi bottles in the United Kingdom (UK) were contaminated.

It began recirculating on social media in Britain after previously appearing in a different format in India.

They alleged that contaminated bottles were in the UK, and stated that the warning comes from the Metropolitan Police.

The message also said that the incident was “shown on Sky News”. The origins of the hoax go back to 2011, where a version of it appeared on Indian social networking sites and in email chains.

Similar to the British hoax, the original claimed to be a message from the police, but referred to a range of Pepsi products and stated that the incident would be reported on NDTV.

In a statement, Met police said: “This is being treated as a hoax”, adding “the allegation is unsubstantiated.”

The list of leaders who have ordered their use is short and telling — Adolph Hitler, Saddam Hussein and now Bashar al-Assad. These weapons, like nuclear and biological agents, are so dangerous to civilians as well as the military that their use has been banned since just after the World War I. Absent an effective United Nations, the only sheriff who can enforce this vital international law is the US, supported by a few close friends like France. If we don’t insist on a zero tolerance standard, the chemical weapons genie will likely be out of the bottle forever.

It has been mired heavily in surveillance and spying across both administrations. Between the two, a growing distrust and suspicion now colors international opinion of the U.S. and there is more resentment than at any time in recent memory.
