Man Who Urinated On Cereal At Kellogg’s Plant Headed To Prison
A Tennessee man will spend ten months in prison for urinating on a conveyor belt at a Kellogg's plant in Memphis. In November 2018, 49-year-old Gergory Stanton pleaded guilty to tampering with consumer products. The U.S. attorney's office in Memphis says Stanton was sentenced last Friday in federal court.
Stanton worked as a contractor for the plant in 2014. He recorded and posted a video online in 2016 of him urinating on the conveyor belt for Raisin Bran's production line. Subsequent videos of similar activity were also recorded and posted online. Once the company alerted law enforcement, an investigation was lainched that involved the Food & Drug Administration.
The incident occurred during a period of strained labor relations and potentially affected Kellogg's Rice Krispies Treats, granola clusters and a few other puffed rice products that are no longer made.
Battle Creek-based Kellogg’s said in a statement that the company is pleased Stanton was “brought to justice."
