Heinz promising free ketchup after Facebook glitch

PITTSBURGH (AP) - November 15, 2011

Monday was the first time Heinz sold a U.S. product through its Facebook page. But an unspecified glitch kept customers from buying the new ketchup until about 9 p.m. Heinz has sold products through Facebook in the United Kingdom before.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette newspaper (http://bit.ly/vxFPWX ) reported Tuesday that Heinz will ship a free bottle of the balsamic ketchup to those who posted on the Facebook page when it wasn't working.

Heinz also will send an additional free bottle to anyone placing a Facebook order for the ketchup Tuesday.

The new ketchup hits stores in December.
