Austin PF Chang’s listed in credit card data breach

AUSTIN (KXAN) – One of Austin’s two PF Chang’s restaurants is among 33 in the nation where credit and debit card information is believed to have been stolen in a recent security breach.

PF Chang’s alerted some of its customers by email Monday morning saying:

We have determined that the security of our card processing systems was compromised, and we have reason to believe that the intruder may have stolen some data from certain credit and debit cards that were used during specified time frames at 33 P.F. Chang’s China Bistro branded restaurant locations in the continental United States. The potentially stolen data includes the card number and in some cases also the cardholder’s name and/or the card’s expiration date. However, we have not determined that any specific cardholder’s credit or debit card data was stolen by the intruder.

Customers who dined at the restaurant at 10114 Jollyville Road between April 10 and June 11 could be impacted by the data breach. You can learn more about what actions the company is taking on your behalf and what to do if you notice fraud on your card via the security section of PFChangs.com.

PF Chang’s was first alerted to the data breach on June 10 by the U.S. Secret Service.
