A video on the internet shows a man peeing on an assembly line at the Memphis Kellogg’s facility.
According to Kellogg's spokesperson Kris Charles, the incident occurred in 2014, and items that could have been affected by this act are Rice Krispies Treats, Rice Krispies Treats cereal and puffed rice cake products.
Due to the graphic nature of the video, FOX13 management has decided not to post the video to our website.
The video can be found on social media and other websites.
Kellogg's spokesperson Kris Charles released the following statement about the incident:
“Kellogg takes this situation very seriously and we were shocked and deeply disappointed by this video that we just learned of yesterday. 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.”
