(KSL News) A Sandy Burger King restaurant has revised its policy, following the controversial treatment of a breast-feeding mother.

Earlier this month, an employee asked the woman to leave the playground area and go to the rest room to breast feed her baby. That came after a complaint from another customer.

This week, the owner of the South Towne Burger King sent a letter of apology to the family, and incorporated a policy statement which reads in part:

"Breast feeding is a natural and normal part of life. Utah law respects a woman's right to breast feed.....South Towne Burger King supports these rights.

Mothers breast feeding in our restaurant should be respected and given as much privacy as possible."
