Kellogg's 'Shocked And Outraged' By Video Showing Man Urinating On Factory Conveyor Belt

DETROIT (WWJ) - A disturbing video that may have originated in Michigan is creating a buzz online.

The 47-second clip, which was posted at, appears to show a man urinating on a conveyor belt at the Kellogg's facility in Battle Creek.

Toward the end of the video — sent to WWJ Newsradio 950 by a listener who asked not to be identified — the man pans the camera upward to show a sign with a Kellogg's logo. 

The corn flakes company would not immediately confirm the authenticity of the video when contacted by WWJ Newsradio 950.

However Kellogg Company spokesperson Kris Charles says looking into it.

"Kellogg takes this situation very seriously and is shocked and outraged by this video. We have alerted law enforcement authorities and regulators, and are conducting a thorough investigation," Charles said, in a statement.

"Our investigation so far revealed that the video was recorded in 2014 or earlier. We will share more information as we learn more."

Most of those commenting about the video have expressed shock and disgust.

KennyDuit wrote: "That's disgusting not even funny...I don't even eat Kelloggs, but that's a real dirt bag not happy with his own life."

Someone with the screen name WorldStarPolice added: "Shouldn't places that deal with food like this have cameras everywhere? Just a thought."
