QR Code on Heinz Ketchup Bottles Goes to Porn Site

If you are one of the dozen or so that actually takes the time to fire up a QR code reader to scan said code on food product labels, then listen up! A German ketchup fan was so consumed with curiosity that he scanned the QR code on the back of a Heinz Ketchup bottle and was rewarded with a porn site. I bet that wasn't the condoment he was expecting. eek!

The man, who identified himself as Daniel Korell in a post on Heinz’s Facebook page, expressed his concern that children may use the QR code and accidentally find the porn site themselves. What caused this confluence of events that managed to bring the world of hardcore pornography and condiments together?
