Whole Foods Reports Credit Card BreachWhole Foods Reports Credit Card Breach
The breach affects customers of certain Whole Foods taprooms and table-service restaurants.
September 30, 2017
Whole Foods is investigating a payment card breach after learning an unauthorized actor accessed payment card information used at taprooms and table-service restaurants, the company reports.
Shoppers who limit their Whole Foods purchases to groceries are likely not affected; taprooms and restaurants use a different point-of-sale system than primary stores. While most Whole Foods Market stores do not have these venues, the company advises customers to closely monitor their card statements and report unauthorized charges to the issuing bank.
Amazon.com transactions have not been affected as its systems don't connect to those at Whole Foods. Earlier this year, Amazon bought the grocery chain for $13.7 billion.
Whole Foods has contacted law enforcement and is working with a cybersecurity forensics firm in an ongoing investigation.
