BANGKOK, 29 September 2013 (NNT) – The Agriculture and Cooperatives Ministry has announced that all Thai canned fruit exported to Brunei Darussalam was not contaminated as accused by Brunei.

After Brunei media has presented news, saying Thai canned fruit products are contaminated with HIV, Deputy Permanent Secretary of Agriculture and Cooperatives Chavalit Cookajorn said that the media did not have a clear evidence suggesting the accusation.

Mr Chavalit added that the Thai Embassy in Brunei had clarify the accusation through Brunei media since the rumor spread in August. However, the people still believed in the rumors and are spreading the message to others. He said people were skeptical about the issue and avoided buying Thai canned products.

The Ministry reiterated that the Thai export canned products have been thoroughly inspected and all factories must have certified GMP and HACCP before the products could be shipped out. It suspected that there was a move to discredit Thai exporters.

That isn't even possible, is it?

Possibly there is an aim in the statement to divert press attention away from the current unrest in Brunei. Or possibly another supplier is muddying the waters so as to secure the market niche for themselves.

Brunei already have their own sultanas.

That's correct, it isn't even possible. HIV can not live in a breathing air environment (oxygen/nitrogen).

I have no idea if such a thing is possible but i do know that i wouldn't trust the words of a single so-called Thai expert on any subject whatsoever !

and Thai ' certification ' means nothing either as almost everything is available if the price is right.

The value of all Thai foodexports to Brunei in the first 8 months of this year is 20 million baht!rolleyes.gif

Makes them an almost as important tradingpartner as Montenegro! So no doubt they should have free visas as well.

The profit from this huge tradingpartner will keep the rice-pledging-scam on tracks for another 15 minutes!

whistling.gif Not possible. As someone said the HIV virus can not survive outside of the human body, at least not for very long.

HIV requires human cells to enter and establish itself.

Unless it has those, found in a human body.. it can not live.

Just another baseless scare story.

To be safe don't insert your sporting equipment into a can of fruit.

Guess I'll have to invest in a proper can opener now.. all the fun's gone out of life!

Are you confessing that you don't believe your STD is cured?

OK, I understand putting it out on Brunei media that all canned goods are certified and checked, but would it not have made more sense to simply say that it is an impossibility and debunked the comment with internationally supported evidence as well (and with more emphasis) followed by in-country law suits against the media outlets reporting it?

That would be far too sensible and clear up the confusion far too completely.

It is funny how do many denials in Thailand are along the lines of, " of course the emporer has clothes on, if he didn't he would be naked", line.....
