Possible security breach at Dayton PF Chang’s


DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – The PF Chang’s restaurant chain is warning customers about a possible security breach.

The list of 33 affected restaurants nationwide includes the PF Chang’s at 2626 Miamisburg-Centerville Road near the Dayton Mall.

The dates of concern for the Dayton restaurant are between February 21, 2014 and June 11, 2014.

The possible security compromise involves credit and debit card data reported stolen.

According to a statement by CEO Rick Federico, “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 credit and debit card 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.”

Frederico says the company is investigating how the breach occurred. The chain is also offering to provide free fraud alert assistance to affected customers’ accounts.
