A box of Rice Krispies in your home may just be the one containing contaminated breakfast cereal from Kellogg’s. This is because cereal company, Kellogg’s, recently confirmed that they were investigating a worker who appears to be peeing on a conveyor belt at one of their factories.
According to Metro, 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 last week 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.’
