MIAMI, Dec. 6 (UPI) -- Burger King said Monday it would lay off 413 employees in North America and Latin America, including more than 250 at its Florida headquarters.

The company that operates more than 12,200 restaurants in 76 countries said it would reduce its South Florida payroll by 8.84 percent.

The South Florida News reported that Burger King on Monday staffed its headquarters "with police officers and medical personnel just in case the news was too much to bear."

There were no additional details about the layoffs.

Burger King was sold for $4 billion to 3G Capital in October.
