(WMC-TV) - Hundreds of flower orders with personal information ended up blowing all over a neighborhood in East Memphis.

A woman who did not want to be identified found hundreds of Kroger flower delivery orders strewn all over the roads.

"I seen all these papers flying from Mt. Moriah and there were some that landed in my yard," she said.

The flower orders from the Kroger at Mendenhall Road and Poplar Avenue have personal information like names addresses, phone numbers, and the personal message from the sender. They are November and December orders.

One of the flower orders was for Memphis City Council member Janis Fullilove.

"First of all I want to thank whoever it was sent me the flowers," said Fullilove.

The flowers were sent to Fullilove's city hall office from a man thanking her for representing her constituents.

"Its a travesty you know. We have people's information that's just scattered all of the city, and they don't know anything about it," she said.

Kroger spokesperson Joe Bell says protocol was not followed. The papers should have been shredded.

"I can be honest with you, I don't know how they got out. They are ours," he said. "I can promise you we will find out how they got out of the store without being shredded."

Action News 5 gave the flower orders back to Kroger.
