Chipotle Warns of Potential Payment System Data Breach
Financial reports indicated Chipotle was finally recovering from a 2015 food safety-related norovirus outbreak, but trouble may be on the horizon for the company once again.
Today, Chipotle Mexican Grill released a statement that warns customers of a potential data breach. The company said they have “recently detected unauthorized activity on the network that supports payment processing for purchases made in our restaurants.” Anyone who used a debit or credit card to pay for their purchase between March 24 and April 18 could be at risk.
The restaurant chain said they immediately began an investigation and contacted law enforcement. They believe they have quashed the unauthorized activity, but said they cannot provide further details, as the investigation is ongoing.
Chipotle has urged customers to monitor their payment card statements for fraudulent activity.
