Is there any truths on this news?
We, at keywordspeak.com wants to retain the credibility of this site and this article only and plainly intends to inform that such news has been circlating online and offline, locally.

We cannot confirm where and who started this rumor, but it can be clearly known that this will hurt the sale of Pepsi and its related products even on small scale.

Pepsi Company in its official website's Frequently Asked Question or FAQ page has released this statement.
Is it true that Pepsi bottles / Tropicana packs were contaminated with HIV infected blood?
No, there is not even a shred of truth to this absurd story. This fake story is an attempt to malign the company's reputation.

Are Pepsi and Tropicana safe for consumption?
Please be assured that Pepsi and Tropicana are 100% safe; they are manufactured in fully automated plants, untouched by hand, that maintain global standards of quality and excellence. There is a fraud SMS being circulated raising concerns that Pepsi bottles and Tropicana packs are contaminated with HIV AIDS infected blood. This is absolutely untrue.

However, here are some facts about how HIV virus can be transmitted.

HIV virus can spread only (that's only) by Blood Transmission , Transfusion Unsafe Sex with an HIV positive. Through birth from HIV positive mother (wich is 70% preventable now). Experts even a dismissed mosquito bite as a mean to transmit it. HIV virus cannot live long in external environment and no ideal condition can keep it alive outside the victim's living cell. Its only survival habitat is a living blood. If the blood comes out and gets frozen or dissolved before entering another body the HIV virus surely dies.
