LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Buy ketchup, get pornography.

A man says he used a QR code on the back of a Heinz bottle to enter its label design contest in Germany. Facebook user Daniel Korrell posted an image of the bottle and the QR results to the Heinz Tomato Ketchup Facebook page (link somewhat NSFW). 

Apparently, the Heinz website had expired and a porn site had taken its place.

Heinz has apologized for the outdated code and website link.

The ketchup company says it's taking steps to prevent the same thing from happening again and the man who noticed the problem was given a custom-designed ketchup bottle for free.

The adult website says it's giving the ketchup user a year's worth of free access.
