The web site of an American department store was altered, briefly offering a grill for "human cooking".
The Sears website was made to list a grill that could "cook babies" and be used to roast body parts, under the category of "human cooking > Grills to Cook Babies and More > Body Part Roaster."
Company officials said it was the doing of a mischievous customer and, the goof, first reported by TMZ.com, when discovered, was quickly changed.
"We discovered earlier today that someone visiting our site had defaced a limited number of product pages," Fox News quoted the company as saying in a written statement.
"It's important for our customers to know that we have no reason to believe that any of our customer or financial data were compromised.
"We've already taken steps to prevent this from happening again. We sincerely apologize to any customers who may have seen this on our site," it was added.
