The advocacy group for the adult film industry has called off a production moratorium after a test showing that a performer was positive for HIV turned out to be erroneous.

The Free Speech Coalition had called for the industry-wide moratorium on Thursday after the unidentified performer had a test return positive.

"Yesterday's potentially positive HIV test by (an) adult performer was a false positive," the group said in a statement. "Production on adult film can resume safely."

Further testing of the person's private and on-screen partners also came back negative.

With the negative test, the porn industry has yet to have a reported case of HIV in 2014, after three in 2013.

The Associated Press and CNS contributed to this report.
