WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) — The nationwide P.F. Chang’s restaurant chain has been hit with a security breach involving credit and debit card data, and two Tri-State Area locations have been affected.

According to a statement dated Aug. 4, the U.S. Secret Service notified the company on June 10 of a possible security compromise involving credit and debit card data reportedly stolen from certain P.F. Chang’s China Bistro branded restaurants at 33 locations, CBS Los Angeles reported.

The locations included one at 125 Westchester Ave. in White Plains and another on 3545 U.S. 1 in Princeton, New Jersey.

Following an investigation, company officials say they believe data from certain credit and debit cards that were used during “specified time frames” at the affected stores, including the card number and in some cases also the cardholder’s name and/or the card’s expiration date.

It has not yet been determined if any specific cardholder’s credit or debit card data was stolen by the intruder, according to company officials, CBS Los Angeles reported.

In a statement, chief executive officer Rick Federico said, “We are committed to providing support and resources, including complimentary identity protection services, for all guests that may potentially be affected by the security compromise.”

Customers who may have patronized any of the affected restaurants are encouraged review their bank accounts for any fraudulent activity on your credit card or debit card and report fraudulent activity to their card company or issuing bank, CBS Los Angeles reported.

More information is available at the P.F. Chang’s website. For further questions, customers can call (877) 412-7152.
