Man sent to prison for urinating in Memphis cereal factory
Had pleaded guilty in November to tampering with consumer products.
MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A Tennessee man has been sentenced to 10 months in prison for urinating on a Kellogg’s cereal conveyor belt at a Memphis facility.
The US attorney’s office in Memphis says 49-year-old Gregory Stanton was sentenced in federal court. Stanton had pleaded guilty in November to tampering with consumer products.
An indictment says Stanton was a contract worker at the Kellogg’s plant in April 2014 when he recorded a video of himself urinating into a bucket and dumping the contents into the Raisin Bran production line. He also recorded himself urinating into a production line a month later.
Stanton posted the videos on the internet in 2016.
Law enforcement and the Food & Drug Administration investigated. Kellogg’s said in a statement that it is pleased Stanton was “brought to justice.”
