Heinz Doesn’t Want You To See This Disgusting Video From Inside Their Factory

A disgusting video from a Heinz ketchup manufacturing plant has been posted online, and it will make you rethink your favorite condiment. The video has been deemed authentic, and the Heinz company is scrambling to do some damage control.

The video was captured by someone in a Cairo, Egypt ketchup plant. The person taking the video appeared to be standing above the workers below, who were surrounded by crates and crates of tomatoes. They were throwing the crates onto a massive machine.

If you take a close look at the crates of tomatoes, it's enough to make you gag. Many of the tomatoes are very discolored. Some look unripe, some look overly-ripe. Some even look nasty and rotten.

The workers seem completely unfazed; they're not picking or choosing or selecting the best products. They're just dumping crateful after crateful into the big vat.

After the video went viral, the Heinz company rushed to explain. “The edited footage shows an unreal picture and neglects the processing stages, hence gives the wrong impression. It is important for everyone to know that we use only healthy tomatoes, all of which are processed using industry-best standards. As always, we remain 100 percent committed to the cleanliness and quality of our tomatoes and the safety of our consumers,” said a statement from the company.

“Safety and quality of our foods is always our first priority. We are aware of recent TV programme and following social media posts making unfounded allegations about the Heinz manufacturing facility in Egypt," Heinz told the MailOnline.com website. “We can reassure consumers that the pictures linked to this story do not represent our factory in a truthful way and do not represent the exacting quality standards we follow during our production process. Consumers can continue to enjoy Heinz products in complete confidence.”

Commenters said 'of course' the tomatoes are gross. IF they were plump and fresh, they'd be sold in produce markets. Companies that make sauces, jams, etc. are trying to get rid of the rotting, moldy fruits.

Hmm. Appetizing.
