Chick-fil-A Probes Possible Data Breach

Officials with Chick-fil-A said Wednesday that the company and an IT contractor are investigating a possible data breach.

In a prepared statement, Chick-fil-A spokeswoman Carrie Kurlander said the company has received reports of unusual activity involving payment cards used at a few of its fast food restaurants.

“We want to assure our customers we are working hard to investigate these events and will share additional facts as we are able to do so,” she said.

The fast food company said customers would not be held liable for any fraudulent charges on their accounts. Either the company or the bank that issued the card will be responsible.

“If our customers are impacted, we will arrange for free identity protection services, including credit monitoring,” Kurlander said.
