If you need another reason to avoid the processed foods that have taken over the American diet, here it is.
A cell phone video from inside the Kellogg’s factory in Memphis, Tennessee was just released, and it showed a man urinating on the conveyor belt full of cereal. This wasn’t a video shot by someone else to expose something horrifying. Nope. The urinator himself is the one who proudly took the video.
(Warning: If you’re eating a bowl of Rice Krispies right now, you might lose them. Nasty.)
Melissa Dykes of The Daily Sheeple pointed out something even more appalling. (And you probably thought it was already as gross as it could be):
Potentially “affected” (aka peed on) products include Rice Krispies Treats, Rice Krispies Treats cereal, and other puffed rice products. The company believes the video was recorded at Kellogg’s Memphis factory back in 2014, which means that all of the urination-tainted food has likely already been eaten.
Let me reiterate that. A bunch of people have already eaten peed-on cereal and cereal bars and had absolutely no idea what they consumed. Do you really think this is an isolated incident? Who knows what kind of nose-picking, hiney-scratching, not-washing-hands-after-the-bathroom shenanigans are actually going on in those food factories?
Just last week, a study revealed that more than half of what Americans consumed is “ultra-processed” products, like Rice Krispies. Not only does this mean that your food isn’t actually food in many cases, but also that you are at the mercy of disgruntled and/or mentally unstable people who work on the assembly lines and don’t care one little bit about the products they’re in charge of. Do you really, truly want to eat stuff like that?
You really do have options.
- Take the challenge and go 100 days without any type of processed food.
- Cook from scratch.
- Learn how to eat again with this e-course (I took it and it’s excellent!)
- Here are 99 healthy meals and snacks if you don’t/can’t cook. (There are a few packaged items in this list that you could easily make yourself.)
Whatever option you choose, do your family a favor. Don’t put yourselves at the mercy of whatever person happens to be working the assembly line on the day your breakfast was put in a plastic package.
