Chipotle Payment Card Data Breach

Abbott Law Group, P.A. > Data Breach > Chipotle Payment Card Data Breach


April 27, 2017: On April 25, 2017, Fast food chain Chipotle disclosed a potential payment card breach for the period between March 24, 2017 through April 18, 2017.

Here is Chipotle’s most recent full web site disclosure as of April 27, 2017: https://chipotle.com/security

We want to make our customers aware that we recently detected unauthorized activity on the network that supports payment processing for purchases made in our restaurants. We immediately began an investigation with the help of leading cyber security firms, law enforcement, and our payment processor. We believe actions we have taken have stopped the unauthorized activity, and we have implemented additional security enhancements. Our investigation is focused on card transactions in our restaurants that occurred from March 24, 2017 through April 18, 2017. Because our investigation is continuing, complete findings are not available and it is too early to provide further details on the investigation. We anticipate providing notification to any affected customers as we get further clarity about the specific time frames and restaurant locations that may have been affected.

Consistent with good practices, consumers should closely monitor their payment card statements. If anyone sees an unauthorized charge, they should immediately notify the bank that issued the card. Payment card network rules generally state that cardholders are not responsible for such charges.

If you used a debit card for a purchase at Chipotle’s restaurant between March 24, 2017 and April 2017, and have been discovered or made aware of unauthorized use or charges to that card, and would like to discuss your legal options, please contact the Data Breach Group at the Abbott Law Group at 904.292.1111 for a confidential, no cost consultation.
