Important msg from Hyderabad police to all over India:
For the next few weeks do not drink any product of Maaza, as a worker from the company has added his blood contaminated with Ebola. It ws shown yesterday on NDTV… Pls forward this msg urgently to people you care… Take Care!!
Share it as much as u can.
Please pass it on to your families in india
The story doing rounds online through social networking websites, including the free messaging service WhatsApp, warns consumers not to drink any product of Maaza saying that a worker from the Company has added his blood contaminated with Ebola virus. The warning supposedly coming from Hyderabad police in India is said to have been shown on NDTV as well. Readers need not share the health warning, as it is a hoax.
The current story about Ebola contamination in Maaza appeared online last year in 2014 during the Ebola outbreak; it surfaced again in 2015. Yes, it is a fact that Ebola virus can spread through infected blood among many other transmission sources, but there is no evidence to prove that such an incident where a worker has contaminated a Maaza product with his Ebola contained blood has happened. Hyderabad police did not issue any such warning, and neither did NDTV show the message.
Old Story Refabricated
As a matter of fact, the Ebola story in question is simply a refabricated version of an old hoax story supposedly coming from Delhi police that stated a worker from Frooti Company has added to the drink his blood contaminated with HIV (AIDS). Very similar HIV warning surfaced in case of Pepsi as well.
