One of the largest pork producers in the world was forced to destroy about 23,000 kilograms of its product. Not because of a disease or an outbreak, but because of a worker’s actions. He allegedly urinated on the production line and it was caught on camera!

Production at a packing plant in Virginia came to a halt. The footage shows the worker working for a few seconds, removing his gloves, leaning against the work surface, and allegedly urinating.
