(KSL News) -- A group of Utah mothers gathered at a Burger King in Sandy today protesting the fast-food giant's reaction to a mother nursing her infant at the restaurant.

An employee at a Burger King in Orem asked a woman who was breast feeding in the playground area to nurse her baby in the rest room. He said they were getting complaints from customers.

Today a group gathered at the restaurant with their babies to eat lunch and to breast feed.

Lori Dean, Salt Lake County: "We shouldn't be told to go to a bathroom or a dressing room or anything like that. We should be able to be there. We are discreet. We are not just flashing ourselves."

It is legal to breast feed in public places in Utah. Utah law says a woman may breast feed anywhere she has a right to be.
