SEATTLE --Starbucks Corp. said Friday it had lost track of four laptop
computers, two of which had private information on about 60,000
current and former U.S. employees and fewer than 80 Canadian workers
and contractors.

The data, which includes names, addresses and Social Security numbers,
is about three years old, dating prior to December 2003, said Valerie
O'Neil, a spokeswoman for the Seattle-based coffee retailer.
