Kellogg’s says cereal was peed on, sold, and probably eaten

This happened two years ago, but apparently Kellogg’s just found out about it. I’m certain the company would never knowingly allow peed on cereal to be sold. I hope the person who did this gets prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. I do not hold this against Kellogg’s.

Kellogg’s admits worker peed on cereal conveyor belt

March 13, 2016

Kellogg’s has confirmed that it’s investigating a worker who urinated on a conveyor belt at one of its factories.

The video is believed to have been shot in 2014 and affected Rice Krispies Treats, Rice Krispies Treats cereal and puffed rice cake products.

Kellogg’s confirmed that the food that had been affected was past its expiration date meaning that it’s likely people have eaten the contaminated products.

The video emerged yesterday on World Star Hip Hop and now Kellogg’s has responded.

An official representative wrote on the company’s blog: ‘Kellogg takes this situation very seriously and we were shocked and deeply disappointed by this video that we learned of. We immediately alerted law enforcement authorities and regulators.

‘A criminal investigation is underway as well as a thorough internal investigation.

‘Our investigation revealed that the video was recorded at our Memphis, TN facility, in 2014. Products that could have been potentially affected were Rice Krispies Treats, Rice Krispies Treats cereal and puffed rice cake products, all of which would be past expiration date.

‘Food quality is of the utmost importance to Kellogg Company. We are outraged by this completely unacceptable situation, and we will work closely with authorities to prosecute to the full extent of the law.’
