First I've heard of this, but apparently a hoax that resurfaces every few years.  Old news.

[Jessada said his department had already looked into the matter and found the rumour was groundless. “There is no credible evidence to substantiate the claim about HIV contamination. In addition, we have found that this rumour was circulated on social media during 2013 and 2014 too. And lately, it has resurfaced again,” he said.] 

[The canning process requires heat treatment that eliminates all harmful microbes and any virus that may exist.

In addition, the HIV virus needs a human host to survive and does not live long outside the human body.]
