Sensitive Information Found in Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade Confetti

Dec 6th, 2012 investigations

CNN reports that sensitive, shredded documents were found amid the confetti used in the annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City. Such sensitive information included names, dates of birth, social security numbers, banking data, and full sentences and license plate numbers, as well as notes about Mitt Romney’s motorcade from the final presidential debate, according to the article.

The report further states that Macy’s spokesman, Orlando Veras, responded by saying:

Macy’s uses commercially manufactured multi-colored confetti, not shredded, homemade or printed paper of any kind in the parade . . . It is not unusual for spectators to bring and throw their own confetti in the direction of parade participants from the sidelines.
