A former Coca-Cola (KO) employee stole laptops from the company that contained the unencrypted personal data of as many as 74,000 workers, contractors and suppliers.

The information included Social Security numbers, compensation and ethnicity.

Coke has retrieved the computers and told its staff that it has "no indication" that the data has been misused.
