SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - California workplace safety officials are investigating a San Francisco-based adult film studio over a shoot involving a performer who tested positive for HIV.
The Los Angeles Times reports the state Division of Occupational Safety and Health opened the investigation Thursday into Kink Studios in response to a complaint filed by the AIDS Healthcare Foundation.
The woman, who performs under the name Cameron Bay, received a positive test result last week.
Spokesman Mike Stabile says Kink gave OSHA inspectors access to its studios and walked them through the company's safety protocols.
On Tuesday a porn industry group lifted a week-old moratorium on adult film production that was prompted by the HIV scare. The Free Speech Coalition lifted the ban after all performers who worked with Bay were medically cleared.
