|Snap, Crackle and Piss. Kellogg's is doing damage control after it was revealed a worker urinated on a processing plant that made Rice Krispies.|
Be warned this video shown is disturbing. Viewer discretion is advised.
This is the first "You can't fix stupid" story of the year. It was talked about last week but I've ignored it because I kind of wanted to not focus on that at the moment.
The things that some people do can cause great harm to you and those around. I mean if you have an issue with a company, don't do anything stupid like what I'm about to explain in a moment.
Kellogg's is outraged over the acts of a worker who piss paraded on their conveyor belt. He would contaminate the product line with his urine and it landed in Kellogg's products.
The alleged incident was recorded at a Memphis facility in 2014. The products were already consumed by lord knows how many people in the United States and Canada.
The company alerted the United States Food and Drug Administration's criminal unit, the FBI, the Shelby County sheriff and Memphis Metro police.
The video that showed the idiot was posted on social media agitator WorldStarHipHop.com.
Now the Memphis plant is under investigation. They're determined who was responsible for the act.
They will look at the machines and determined if the idiot urinated on the one in question.
"It is important to note that any products that could be potentially impacted would be very limited and past their expiration dates," Kellogg said. It said the products that were potentially affected include Rice Krispies Treats, granola clusters used in some products and puffed rice treats that it no longer makes.
"We are outraged by this completely unacceptable situation, and we will work closely with authorities to prosecute to the full extent of the law," the company said.
Although "this behavior was disgusting," said Paul Norman, president of Kellogg North America, "this type of situation is a food quality issue and does not present a food safety risk."
