Several websites such as CNNews3.com and the Zambian Observer reported that a 10-year-old boy contracted the deadly virus seven days after eating bananas his mom bought from the Walmart store.
The boy reportedly exhibited symptoms such as fever, fatigue and chills, and had to be admitted to hospital. Tests then reportedly revealed the virus in the boy's blood.
The reports further alleged that eight more boys also showed the same symptoms and all reported to have consumed the bananas from the same store.
Laboratories reportedly carried out tests on bananas sold at the store and allegedly found the virus in them.
These reports remain unconfirmed and unverified by US health authorities as well as Walmart officials. Similar reports have previously appeared online without evidence.
In addition, medical experts affirm that the HIV virus cannot survive outside the human body.
