A Kellogg’s factory worker who filmed himself peeing onto a production line has been jailed.

Gregory Stanton, 49, also filmed himself urinating into a bucket and throwing the contents onto the Raisin Bran production line.

Stanton posted the clips online where they went viral before his arrest.

The sickening clips, taken at the factory in Memphis, Tennessee, has caused fear consumers had ingested the contaminated cereal.

Stanton posted the footage online, sparking an investigation led by the police and the Food and Drug administration.

Kellogg’s issued an apology after the footage surfaced, branding the worker, jailed for 10 month, “disgusting”.

Company President Paul Norman said: “Kellogg takes this situation very seriously and we are shocked and disappointed.

“While this behavior was disgusting and criminal, this type of situation is a food-quality issue and does not present a food safety risk.”

Stanton pleaded guilty in November to tampering with consumer products with intent to cause serious injury to the business of any person.

Prosecutor Michael Dunavant said: “American citizens and consumers rely upon food manufacturers engaged in interstate commerce to provide them with safe and consistent products.

“This defendant betrayed that trust by tampering with and tainting food products.”

In addition to his 10-month sentence, Stanton was also ordered to pay $10,000 (£8,000).
