Kellogg (K) said on Monday a criminal investigation is underway into a man seen urinating into cereal at one of its factory assembly lines after a video of the 2014 incident surfaced online last week and went viral.
The company found out on Friday about the graphic “not-suitable for work” video, that has now been seen almost 500,000 on the World Star Hip Hop site, and immediately informed law enforcement, Kellogg told Fortune in a statement. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s Office of Criminal Investigation is conducting a probe and the company is conducting an internal investigation. Kellogg said it is still working to identify the individual in the video.
“Food quality is of the utmost importance to Kellogg Company. We are outraged by this completely unacceptable situation,” Kris Charles, a Kellogg spokesperson, told Fortune. Kellogg said that any potentially affected product (mostly Rice Kripsies Treats) would be very limited in quantity and past their expiration dates.
The episode took place at a time Kellogg, the maker of Corn Flakes, and the workers union were locked in a nasty labor fight, Memphis TV station WREG reported.
