Burger King customers received a receipt in their email inboxes, which was left blank and included the area listing the items ordered as well as payment details. “Thanks for ordering from Burger King!” the blank receipts read.
The fast food chain was flooded with inquiries after the accidental emails were sent.
“Thank you for reaching out. We are aware of the issue and are investigating internally,” the company automatically responded to multiple accounts on Twitter, in response to the large number of customer queries.
It was determined that people from the United States and the United Kingdom received the emails. They were sent by Burger King’s main promotional marketing email address. As of this posting, it’s not clear whether the company suffered a privacy breach of some kind.
