Hormel Foods has been made aware of a video circulating on social media depicting an incident in a grocery store in Missouri. The subject of the video has been identified by social media users as Benjamin Elkins, an employee of Hormel Foods, which is not accurate. This individual is not an employee of Hormel Foods. Our records show he was employed for about 90 days by the company’s flight department and has not been employed by the company in the last 30 days. The individual’s actions in the video are appalling and it is unfortunate that his actions have been linked in any way to our company.
