This reminds me of the whole thing about HIV-infected people putting infected needles under the handles of gas pumps, so if you pick it up you get infected.

which points out to the person above that sexually transmitted diseases can be passed via needles/cuts/blood

I'm more concerned with what the government allows in our food before anyone might contaminate the final product.

Below are are some examples of "The Food Defect Action Levels" per the U. S. Food and Drug Administration. So anything less than what is listed, is an acceptable level of natural or unavoidable defects in foods, that present no health hazards for humans.

Peanut butter
Average of 30 or more insect fragments per 100 grams
Average of 1 or more rodent hairs per 100 grams

Pepper, ground
Average of 475 or more insect fragments per 50 grams
Average of 2 or more rodent hairs per 50 grams

Popcorn
1 or more rodent excreta pellets are found in 1 or more subsamples, and 1 or more rodent hairs are found in 2 or more other subsamples
2 or more rodent hairs per pound and rodent hair is found in 50% or more of the subsamples
20 or more gnawed grains per pound and rodent hair is found in 50% or more of the subsamples

Potato chips
Average of 6% or more pieces by weight contain rot

Spinach, canned or frozen
Average of 50 or more aphids, thrips and/or mites per 100 grams
2 or more 3 mm or longer larvae and/or larval fragments or spinach worms (caterpillars) whose aggregate length exceeds 12 mm are present in 24 pounds

Tomatoes, canned
Average of 10 or more fly eggs per 500 grams
5 or more fly eggs and 1 or more maggots per 500 grams
2 or more maggots per 500 grams

It's really false huh??

Nah..I'm not buying it because it seems too likely..it's not like some guy with HIV or some other disease couldnt put his blood in it. Or a woman, for that matter. Why couldnt it happen?



Not saying it couldn't happen, because I totally believe it could. I would just like to think that most people who suffer from the disease wouldn't do. It's obviously immoral and cruel. I do agree with the fact that ALOT of people are scared that they are going to catch it and tend to villianize (sp?) the people with it. Who know's, I don't think I'll be using bottled ketchup at restaurant's anytime soon, though.

LOL you don't think people would be that cruel? I'm sorry, but what world do you live in? This couldn't be any more expected. People shoot others just for the heck of it, and you don't think they'd do this? Come on. Most people just want others to suffer because we suck, sad but true.

This was apparently a failed attempt, thank God. Don't worry. People'll just come up with another way.

I've heard those news.
and bleh, that's disgusting.
The only thing that you can do is to ensure everything of what you're eating, and try as much as possible to NOT go eat outside of your house like in a restaurant, or a simple diner.

Thats why you don't worry about it and just keep eating what you've been eating. If this really was serious we would've had an epidemic by now.

I'm not saying that people aren't cruel, I know first-hand how cruel they can actually be. And, for all I know it happens everyday. I know that there are ppl who are bitter because they have a life-threatening disease and want other without it suffer like they are, but I don't believe that there is a huge percentage of HIV postive people who are infecting food. I just wanted to pass along the page from Snopes, that's all.

It's just the thought. I guess I could live with the bug fragments thing, but NOT the fly eggs and rat stuff. BLECH!

First of all, the chances of catching HIV that way are like, well, basically nothing.
The reason is the virus cannot survive outside the body that long.

Still though, that is pretty disgusting, in more ways than one. I don't exactly enjoy the thought of eating ketchup with someone's blood in it. Also, this shows how sick and cruel people are...

However, bear in mind I'm sure it's a VERY low percentage who are doing this.

Also:

HIV only spreads when you have sex :L

thats why its called an Sexually Transmited Desise


You need to take a sex ed class before sounding so definite and trying to post your age as 19.
