P.F. Chang’s has confirmed that there has been a major credit card security breach at their restaurants, and that data from an unknown number of credit and debit cards has been stolen. For now, the company, according to the Associated Press, is working with banks to determine which credit card companies and customers have been affected. In addition, all P.F. Chang’s locations will now be using manual credit card imprinting devices to process payment.
"P.F. Chang's takes these matters very seriously and is currently investigating the situation, working with the authorities to learn more," a representative from the company said in a statement. "We will provide an update as soon as we have additional information."
Customers who have eaten recently at P.F. Chang’s are being urged to monitor their banking activity to make sure that there have been no instances of identity theft, and to report suspicious behavior.
Although the number of stolen credit card numbers is still unknown, NBC reports that there may have been thousands of credit and debit cards affected.
