Highly unlikely: Although it I would not recommend sharing used utensils with someone who has a transmittable disease, it is highly unlikely that HIV would be transmitted this way

Definitely, no: The research evidence shows that HIV is not spread through touch, tears, sweat, or saliva. Hence, sharing eating utensils with an HIV-positive person you cannot catch HIV.
