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.
