That rather disconcerting bit comes from Kellogg’s and references an incident that apparently occurred in 2014 at a plant in Memphis, Tennessee.
In a video - originally uploaded to World Star Hip Hop on Friday - a worker appears to urinate on the assembly line. As The Daily Mail dryly notes, "At first it is not clear what he is urinating on, but as the self-shot cell phone video pans upwards, a conveyor belt leading to thousands of corn flakes can be seen.
"[We] immediately alerted law enforcement authorities and regulators", a company spokesperson said.
The FDA is conducting a criminal investigation into the matter but you shouldn't worry too much, because if you had any of the "potentially affected" products you apparently survived. They would all be past their expiration date at this juncture.
Here's the video for those who are inclined to view it:
We suppose the question here is this: how often does this happen to your food? We'd imagine most people don't film their exploits and when they do, they don't upload them to the internet. We're reminded of another rather unfortunate incident that unfolded at Subway two years ago involving some bread.
Additionally, you might have heard the saying "who peed in your Corn Flakes?"
Now we know the answer: this guy did.
