Hoax: HIV infected blood added to packed edibles.

Spread the truth:

This is a decade old Hoax, products and photos keep changing. Then it was Frooti, Maaza, now it’s Cadbury.
All such Hoax say “yesterday shown on this channel” but they never give out the link, nor it’s to be found anywhere. No such case has been registered yet.


The above image is viral with text

“This is the guy who added his infected blood to Cadbury products. For the next few week do not eat any products from Cadbury, as a worker from the company has added his blood contaminated with HIV (AIDS). It was shown yesterday on BBC News. Please forward this message to people who you care”

Let’s dissect the Hoax point wise.

First of all, the photo is of Nyanya Bombing Mastermind Ogwuche, from July 2014, Nigeria.

They said Ogweche’s transfer occurred at Abuja International Airport and he was immediately taken into custody.

Ogweche was a former Army soldier who fled the military and later allegedly planned the Nyanya bombing with 5 of his acquaintances.

After the horrible bombing went off, he flew out of the country to Sudan, where he was arrested by Sudanese officials who transferred him to Interpol.

On May 14 the Coordinator of the National Information Centre, Mike Omeri revealed that the Nigerian State Security officials had already arranged to have him extradited back to the country to face charges.

He said: “We wish to authoritatively confirm the interception and consequent arrest of one of the two suspects on the wanted list, Aminu Sadiq Ogwuche who fled to Sudan.

He will now face the Nigerian Justice system, after his absense delayed hearing of the case.“

Mr Omeri, when contacted by PremiumTimes, confirmed the report that the suspect has been handed over and is in Nigeria.


Secondly, HIV Virus can survive only in Bodily fluids e.g. blood, semen, saliva

How long can HIV survive outside the body?

Once outside the body, HIV usually can’t survive for very long. Coming into contact with blood or semen, from a person who has a detectable viral load, that has been outside the body doesn’t generally pose a risk for HIV transmission.

Similarly, the risk of passing on HIV to someone else if you have a detectable viral load and injure yourself is also very low. Wash away any blood with soap and hot water and cover the wound with a sticking plaster or dressing.

How is HIV not passed on?

Many activities pose no risk of getting or passing on HIV:

You cannot pass on HIV by:

  • kissing
  • hugging
  • shaking hands with somebody
  • any other normal social contact
  • sharing space with someone
  • sharing a toilet
  • sharing household items such as cups, plates, cutlery, or bed linen.
