Amazon mistakenly sends baby registry emails

Amazon is responding after hundreds of customers got emails on Tuesday saying that an item on their baby registries had been purchased.

The only problem is that those customers who received the emails are not pregnant.

And actually, some of them have kids who are now adults.

The email read, "A gift is on the way" and was impersonally addressed to an "Amazon customer."

The message included a link, which for some redirected them to a page to set up a registry while others were taken to a broken link.

While the email looked like a phishing email, it was in fact from Amazon and none of the links have been found to be suspicious.

When one recipient called customer service, the company acknowledged that the emails went out and described it as a "technical issue."

The company has since issued apology emails.

Some users are taking the glitch lightly and are even poking fun at the company.
