Heinz apologizes for ketchup bottle QR code tied to porn site

1 post in this topic

BERLIN, June 17 (UPI) -- A German man who tested out the QR code on a bottle of Heinz ketchup offering a defunct promotion says the code now leads to a porn site.

Daniel Korell wrote to the ketchup firm on Facebook, saying the Heinz Hot Ketchup "is probably not for minors" after he scanned the QR code on his bottle expecting to be taken to a label design contest website and was instead taken to a porn site.

Korell wrote he tried the code with "several phones" and tried manually entering the web address, but he received the same result each time.

Heinz apologized to Korell, saying the company's ownership of the website expired after the 2012-2014 contest came to a close.
