The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is conducting a criminal investigation into a video that appears to show a Kellogg's factory worker filming himself urinating on an empty conveyer belt where Kellogg's products are assembled.

The video was shot during a tense labor dispute at a Memphis, Tennessee Kellogg's factory in 2014, according to WREG-TV.

“Kellogg takes this situation very seriously and we were shocked and deeply disappointed by this video,” said Kellogg's spokesperson Kris Charles in a statement released Saturday.

“We immediately alerted law enforcement authorities and regulators. A criminal investigation is underway as well as a thorough internal investigation.”

Charles said the company is "outraged" by the "completely unacceptable" situation and plans to prosecute the urinator to the fullest extent of the law.

The Kellogg facility in South Memphis makes Rice Krispies Treats, granola clusters and other puffed rice treats. Kellogg's confirmed the urine-tainted products were sold to the public and very likely consumed.

All of the products that were made around the timeframe of the video would be expired or are out of production by now.

The 43-second video was originally uploaded to the Internet on Friday by World Star Hip Hop Uncut, a restricted section of Worldstarhiphop.com that streams graphic videos.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    This was roughly 2 years ago (depending on exact date), so how in THEE ENTIRE HELL will this investigation go? WILL you compare shoes from the video? What if the shoes no longer exist? Ask to see ALL the penis of the male staff from 2014? Rights to stay HELL NO & what if they NO longer work there...THIS JUST DOESN'T MAKE SENSE!

  • <—Doesn'tTalkToStrangers

    New (ho) Post

  • CookieMobster

    It that's an extremely deprave individual to do something like this

  • Renee26

    The workers in other countries probably do much worse...may not even wear gloves...hence the cheaper production. They're cutting back somewhere.

  • Renee26

    Right..they probably don't even know which area he did it in

  • TheWildChild

    Glad I don't eat processed foods. ??

  • TheWildChild

    Money talks ? Trust me, someone will rat him out for a few coins.

  • Go Head With That

    We are all going to be raising our own food soon because what we dont think about is the people making and packaging food. Even natural or organic or whatever the new terms for high priced supposedly exclusive type foods. It may have been grown in super soil but who grew it, how do they live and who packages...are they sick.....sigh. Kellog never saw this coming

  • Carrington

    You start with digital fingerprints. Trace the IP address of where the original video was uploaded from... find out who from that IP address worked for, or had access to someone who worked for the company - and work your way forward, I would imagine.

  • Auditor

    Who knows what worker tracking system they have...trust they'll figure it out.

  • Deno Spencer

    I forget the name of the book I read in high school economics that talked about the American food manufacture system and How there has been insects and rat drippings in our processed food since America started the processed food assembly line.
    But this just makes me want to eat only fresh homemade stuff

  • Auditor

    Exactly I never got that logic...

  • Auditor

    The Jungle wasn't it?

    Yup I'm like pee...pee is the LEAST of your worries...

  • Deno Spencer

    !!YES!!

  • Wuts got Petty Davis Eyes..

    Yep this is true. Most canned goods or process foods are allowed a certain amount of "Foriegn" substance in the product and remains acceptable for human consumption.

  • Deno Spencer

    Smiling. Giving u high fives

  • Wuts got Petty Davis Eyes..

    My kids and I stop using canned good a loong time ago.We always do fresh or frozen But cereal omg.. We eat that. But even things like oatmeal, flour, grits, sugar, and things we make other things with have the same guidelines.. they can have foreign matter and still be acceptable..

  • Wuts got Petty Davis Eyes..
  • TheWildChild

    So true tho...? Those factories should pay and provide better working conditions so these clowns don't compromise the products. Imagine what some of the others are doing incognito. ???

  • http://citygirlzen.blogspot.com/ missarewa

    thank you Lord that I only eat homemade food and Kind bars. I support prosecuting this guy, how vile can you really be?

  • Queen

    Girl first of all that could happen anywhere I am from Memphis and we are not the only city in the USA that have ignorant bastards like this committing ignorant crimes so please stop with the grouping people together all because of one mans actions we will never get anywhere with that way of thinking

  • Low E. {CIRCA 1908}

    UMMM...PLEASE BE GONE. I LIVE IN MEMPHIS - BEEN HERE ALL 26 OF MY YEARS BOO. I'M REFERRING TO THE PEOPLE HERE IN THIS CITY THAT I DRIVE PAST EVERY DAMN DAY PRETTY MUCH DOING NOTHING OR NOT WANTING A DAMN THING FOR THEMSELVES. I'M NOT GROUPING ANYBODY TOGETHER, HOWEVER, MY COMMUTE IS CLOSE TO 2 HOURS EVERY DAY AND I GO FROM SOUTHEAST THROUGH ORANGE MOUND THEN BACK EAST TO WORK AND I MAKE THE SAME CIRCLE IN REVERSE. MY MOTHER HAS A BUSINESS LITERALLY 3 MILES OR LESS FROM THIS FACILITY AND I KNOW THE DEMOGRAPHIC IN THE SURROUNDING NEIGHBORHOODS. IF "WE" TRULY WANTED BETTER THEN THE CITY WOULDN'T BE SO RAGGEDY...

    AND SINCE WE'RE GOING THERE - TELL ME WHY A 15 YEAR OLD GIRL WAS SHOT DEAD IN THE HAVEN TODAY...TELL ME WHY. THIS CITY BREEDS THIS AND HIGHER LEVELS OF FOOLISHNESS AND THE AFFECTED DON'T CARE TO BREAK THE CYCLE PERIOD.

    AND DON'T "GIRL" ME...I DON'T KNOW YOU AND WE ARE NOT COOL. DON'T BRING THAT MALICIOUS ARSE MEMPHIS ISHT UP IN HERE. POSITIVE VIBES ONLY.

  • lilyborn

    Men disgust me so much. You hardly see women doing this crap. What is wrong with them. If you are mad at your job why take it out on the public who did nothing to you? What a sick fukk and why is that factory so quiet? No one around to check on things?

  • Branch Davidian

    There are probably a lot of White People who will pay MORE for Rice Pisspie Treats...

  • Queen

    GIRL your 26 so that explains your response smh immature. If it's such a problem do something about it I can't explain why God chose to allow happen what happened to the 15 year old young lady who lost her life R.I.P to her all I can do is tell you to pray and pray hard.

  • ihatethesebitches

    So. Who cares? He's married to a racist.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    Although I'm no size queen, I just came to see how big it is.

    Topic: That's disgusting beyond words man. Ewww. Ok, no more apple jacks just because. IDC if it was 2014. Ewww. So no one could tell the belt had a hint of piss smell that morning. That's disgusting.

  • Fendi

    Apparently, you cared enough to reply. Some of us post news here that we feel is pertinent to today's climate. I didn't post for your attention, so if you don't like what you see, you're more than welcome to gloss over it.

  • Deno Spencer

  • Brook York

    Disgusting! Some people you just can't please, he pissed his job away.

  • WetPntees

    The video should give them an EXACT location as to where this lit-up conveyor belt is sitting.. *shrugs*

  • Low E. {CIRCA 1908}

    BUT WE'RE CLEARLY TALKING ABOUT MEMPHIS HERE, NO? THE PROBLEM IS ONE PERSON CAN'T SAVE THE WORLD, BUT COLLECTIVELY WE CAN BECAUSE THERE'S STRENGTH IN NUMBERS. YOU CHOSE MY COMMENT OUT OF ALL THE OTHERS ONES WHY? BECAUSE WE'RE BOTH FROM MEMPHIS? GOD DIDN'T ALLOW IT TO HAPPEN, BUT WHAT YOU NEED TO UNDERSTAND IS THAT IT'S A PROBLEM (YES THAT PLAGUES OTHER PLACES) BUT I CAN'T CARE ABOUT EVERYWHERE ELSE IF I DON'T CARE ABOUT HOME FIRST. IF YOU AGREED THEN JUST SAY "I CONCUR" OR SOMETHING ALONG THE LINES OF THAT...CALL ME ONE MORE NAME THAT'S NOT THE ONE YOU SEE BESIDE MY AVI THO.

    "IF IT'S SUCH A PROBLEM" ...BUT I'M THE ONE WHO'S IMMATURE. COOL. BE WELL THO.
