GEORGIA -- Coca-Cola said Friday that laptop computers stolen from its Atlanta headquarters held the personal information of up to 74,000 people.

The Wall Street Journal first reported the theft Friday, citing a memo sent to Coca-Cola's U.S. and Canadian employees.

Spokeswoman Ann Moore said the company has recovered the laptops with personal information on compensation, ethnicity and addresses of mostly former and current employees of Coca-Cola Co.

The company, however, has no indication that the information on the stolen computers was misused.

Coke is sending letters to about 18,000 people whose names and Social Security numbers were found on the laptops. Moore said that the company cannot provide further details on the thefts because there is an ongoing law enforcement investigation. (AP)
