HIV needles found in soft drink machines-Fiction

HIV-Infected Needles Hidden in Soft Drink MachinesFiction!



Summary of eRumor: This email is from Canada.  It alleges that there are soft drink machines in which are hidden HIV infected needles and when someone sticks a finger into the return-coin slot, the finger is pricked and the HIV virus is transmitted.

The Truth:

  This is not true.  It is a variation on an urban legend about hidden HIV infected needles in theaters, pay phones, and the play areas of fast food restaurants.  There is no documented case of this happening.
