This is a good one and I’ll be anxious to hear what happens imageon this one for sure.  Did someone decide it was a good time to mix in the confetti with the official confetti that Macy’s uses, or did Macy’s run short and use some from maybe another supplier?  These are all just questions since the store says they use non printed paper for their confetti.  Well you might say “bye bye” confetti at some point I guess as it’s a mess to clean up anyway:)

Even so there are cross shredders who can make quick work of documents as such and there was a lot of information on these strips as you can see from the video that personal information on police was included, social security numbers, date of birth, banking information and so on.  Heck I’m surprised that this time medical records escaped being included in this mess.  BD

Something far more concerning than marching bands, balloons, cheerleaders and clowns was at the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. Confidential personal information is what some parade goers found among confetti tossed during the world's most famous parade. That information included social security numbers and banking information for police employees, some of whom are undercover officers

"There are phone numbers, addresses, more social security numbers, license plate numbers and then we find all these incident reports from police."
One confetti strip indicates that it's from an arrest record, and other strips offer more detail. "This is really shocking," Finkelstein said. "It says, 'At 4:30 A.M. a pipe bomb was thrown at a house in the Kings Grant' area."

For its part, the sponsor of the parade, Macy's, told PIX11 News that it uses "commercially manufactured, multicolor confetti, not shredded paper.",0,4718007.story
