Kellogg Under Investigation For Employee Urinating In Rice Krispies

SomeoneMayHavePeedYourRiceKrispyTreat_A criminal investigation has recently begun involving the Kellogg Company, after a video was released on the Internet of a man deliberately urinating in a batch of Rice Krispies at a Memphis factory.

The video was uploaded to the website It looks to have been taken by the perpetrator, whose identity remains unknown at this time. The Kellogg company claims it “just found out” about the incident. However, this may have been going on for a long time.

After investigating the video, Kellogg spokespeople claim that it was made in 2014.

Regarding this disgusting incident, Paul Norman, the president of Kellogg North America, wrote:

“Kellogg takes this situation very seriously and we are shocked and disappointed. This person’s conduct is unacceptable, and I want to share with you what we know today and what we are doing to get to the bottom of this criminal act.”

Norman further explained:

“We immediately contacted law enforcement authorities and the FDA, and a criminal investigation is underway. We are working closely with the authorities to identify the individual, fire him if he still works at the plant and prosecute him to the full extent of the law… Our team is continuing to work around the clock to gather the facts. At this time, we do not know why the perpetrator waited several years to post the video online.”

According to Kris Charles, a Kellogg spokesperson, the contaminated products, “… include Rice Krispies Treats, granola clusters used in a couple of products, and a few other puffed rice treats that we no longer make.”

Charles assured consumers that the Rice Krispies products in the affected batch would no longer be on the shelves, as they would be well past their expiration dates.

However, even if the Kellogg products from the batch seen defiled in the video are no longer on store shelves, since the perpetrator has not yet been identified, there is no guarantee that he has not urinated in other Kellogg’s products on the assembly line. This is the only incident we have video evidence of — but he may not have recorded all of his wrongdoings. A truly revolting thought, indeed.

Not surprisingly, since consumers learned of this incident, Kellogg stock has gone down.

It’s easy in this case to point a finger at the Kellogg company and say that they should have been watching their employees more closely. This is a justified response. Yet, when we think about how most processed foods are made, this could have happened anywhere.

While such egregious and intentional food contamination is not commonly seen (or, maybe perpetrators just don’t commonly record themselves), instances of unwanted materials in processed foods happen often. Just this year, the Mars company found bits of plastic in their chocolate bars, leading to a huge recall. In 2013, horse meat was found in Burger King beef in the United Kingdom, and in beef products sold on Aldi store shelves. The list goes on.

It’s worrying to think that these are the incidents that make the news, but many more, potentially worse incidents may fly under the radar. When we consume processed foods, we can never guarantee what actual ingredients we are eating, and whether unwanted additions — such as human urine, for instance — are secretly lurking inside.

Kellogg’s latest investigation is enough to make anyone rethink the “convenience” of processed foods, and turn to home-cooked options. A healthy breakfast free of processed junk is easy to make, and if you cook it yourself, you’ll know exactly what’s in it — and what isn’t.

Is There Feces in Your Ground Turkey?

forcemeat on the white backgroundRather than asking, is there poop in ground turkey, as consumers, we should be asking instead, why is there poop in ground turkey — and all other poultry and meat for that matter?  Fecal contamination is surprisingly common on poultry products in grocery stores, and if you don’t believe that’s true, read on and see why.

A study conducted by scientists with the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, tested chicken products for the presence of feces, sold in 15 grocery store chains, within 10 U.S. cities. Not so surprisingly, chicken products from every grocery store tested positive for fecal contamination — 48 percent of all chicken samples tested positive.

How does this happen

Typically, due to the conditions of poultry farms and during transportation, chickens and turkeys defecate on themselves, on each other and stand in their own poop. In addition, feces are also present in intestines during the time of slaughter.

Chickens are stunned, killed, bled and then sent through scalding tanks, which help remove feathers but also transfer feces from one bird to another. Carcasses are rinsed with chlorinated water and then visually inspected for fecal matter. However, with some slaughter lines processing as many as 140 birds per minute, inspectors have little time to examine each caucus for feces.

Carcasses are then chilled in ice water, where feces can spread from bird to bird. After chilling, some chickens are cut into pieces, allowing further fecal contamination from carcass to implements. Birds are packaged, carrying fecal bacteria to consumers.

What’s in a feces

While feces aren’t typically visible on turkey, chicken breasts or meat products it does contain undigested food, dead cells, hepatically excreted compounds, parasites, and live bacteria, which can be benign or pathogenic.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) requires slaughterhouses and processing companies to test for levels of E. coli. Therefore, according to the USDA’s “Guidelines for Escherichia coli testing for Process Control Verification in Poultry Slaughter Establishments,” facilities must test one chicken per every 22,000 slaughtered, or perform at least one test each week.

Clearly, with so much poultry and meat products sold in grocery stores testing positive for fecal pathogens such as salmonella, campylobacter, E. Coli something is clearly not working.

Salmonella poisoning

Salmonella, a fecal pathogen transfers to us when we eat foods contaminated with animal feces. Each year approximately 20,000 people are hospitalized, and almost 400 die because of salmonella poisoning suggest the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Symptoms of Salmonella poisoning range from diarrhea, abdominal cramps, headaches, body aches and fever to chronic debilitating arthritis.

Where is salmonella found the most? Most would guess chicken, but no, turkey has nearly twice the risk of salmonella contamination. And in terms of percentages we’re talking about  one in seven retail packages of poultry has the potential to make us ill.

Campylobacter food poisoning

Contracting campylobacter food poisoning once, can trigger Guillain-Barré Syndrome, which can leave you so completely paralysed you can’t even breathe on your own. With the virtual elimination of polio in the US – the most common cause of neuromuscular paralysis comes from eating chicken. Campylobacter is found mostly on chicken breasts, and in fewer than 50 percent of the chickens sold in stores.

Food becomes contaminated with campylobacter, when food handlers do not properly wash their hands after touching raw meat or after using the washroom, suggests the Public Health Agency of Canada. Bacteria may also transfer directly from chicken, to contaminate other foods or surfaces, including cutting boards and knives.

Then there’s E. coli

E. coli is a general indicator of how much poop is on or in the meat. Most strains of E. coli are harmless; yet, some strains can make you very sick, causing severe stomach cramps, diarrhea and vomiting. Serious complications of an E. coli infection may also lead to kidney failure.

Once again, turkey has the most E. coli, with 9 out of 10 packages sold, containing poop. Unfortunately, most ground beef has manure in it as well. But on a positive note less than half of all pork chops in the store are contaminated with hog feces.

So, we now know that feces contamination may be found on a high percentage of poultry and meat products prior to the packaging process. We also know that feces contamination exists inside the packaging once it reaches the grocery store. Therefore, as consumers, we should be keenly aware that animal feces enters our kitchens on approximately half of the poultry products we purchase, regardless of the region or brand. So, what can we do about it?

Safe steps in food handling

The meat packaging industry might be out of our hands; however, whatever we bring into our kitchens — we can control. When handling raw meat, wash your hands and surfaces often, suggest the USDA. Separate raw meat from other foods, cook to the right temperature to kill bacteria and refrigerate raw meat quickly.

Cook all ground, red meat to a minimum internal temperature of 160 °F. Additionally, cook all poultry including breasts, legs, thighs, wings, ground poultry, and whole bird with stuffing to a minimum internal temperature of 165 °F.

The moral of this story: Until improvements are in place, in the way our meat and poultry sources are treated and packaged, always assume there is poop in your ground turkey.

New Proof That GMOs Are Harmful

lab rat on gmo

Like something out of a science fiction thriller, genetically modified organisms (GMO) are having horrifying effects in lab tests.
Genetically modified corn engineered to be resistant to Roundup herbicide (a Monsanto brand) caused rapidly accelerating tumors in both male and female lab rats over the course of 2 years.
And these are no small tumors.
On  French studies “Females developed large mammary tumors almost always more often than and before controls,” the study quotes. Not to mention that “the sex hormonal balance was modified by GMO and Roundup treatments.” Oh, and don’t forget “very significant kidney chronic deficiencies.”
Meanwhile, male rats developed liver congestions and necrosis and they “presented 4 times more large palpable tumors than controls which occurred up to 600 days earlier.”
Read that finding again… 600 days earlier. The study itself was only 2 years long (730 days) which means the tumors began growing within the first few months of the test!
It’s enough to make you think twice about eating genetically modified food, especially if it is engineered to be resistant to a certain herbicide, like the Roundup resistant corn used in this study.
When a “Roundup Ready” crop is sprayed with Roundup herbicide, everything else dies, but the genetically engineered crop lives. There are many herbicide companies each with their own “brand” of GM crop that is resistant to their company’s herbicide.
FYI: Multiple applications of herbicide are common practice in herbicide-resistant GMO crops… once before the plant emerges [pre-emergent], again after the plant has established [post-emergent], at least once more during the growing season, and once again in the fall.
This means the herbicide can be sprayed on the crop over and over again without killing it — increased herbicide toxicity is all but certain with these types of crops!
The shocking findings of this French study suddenly make “Prop 37″ a crucial election decision. If you haven’t heard about Prop 37, you will soon. It’s a proposition before Californian voters that calls for mandatory labeling of GMO foods. And if California votes it in, likely the entire country will follow.
