P.F. Chang’s CEO Rick Federico released a statement Monday saying the company is doing everything it can to protect customer data following a breach.
Federico says the company has figured out which restaurants across the country were compromised and has posted that list online. Tulsa’s P.F. Chang’s location is included on that list, so if you have eaten there and paid with a debit or credit card, you may want to keep a watchful eye on your statements.
The company’s website says the Secret Service alerted P.F. Chang’s of the breach on June 10, 2014. Company officials say the situation was contained by the next day, June 11, 2014.
The company is doing whatever necessary to protect those who may have had personal information stolen.
“At no charge, P.F. Chang's guests can also have these credit bureaus place a “fraud alert” on their files that alerts creditors to take additional steps to verify their identity prior to granting credit in their names.” Federico wrote.
The company apologized to those affected on its website and recommends they file a claim with the Federal Trade Commission.
P.F. Chang’s also owns Pei Wei, but noted that none of those restaurants were compromised.
