Customer data breach at 44 Noodles & Company eateries in MN


If you've eaten at Noodles & Company recently, you might want to check your bank and credit card statements.

That's because the fast food chain fell victim to a data breach that compromised the payment information of customers who used their debit or credit cards at locations across the country between January 31 and June 2 this year.

The company has since been able to tighten security so that cards are no longer at risk from the malware used to perpetrate the breach, but customers have been told to check their financial statements and credit reports for any unusual activity during that period.

All 44 Noodles & Company eateries in Minnesota were impacted by the breach, a full list of which can be found here.

The company said the information stolen includes the cardholder's name, card number, expiration date and the CVV number.

Online transactions were not affected and Social Security numbers were not stolen, as the chain does not collect that information.

"Noodles & Company takes the security of our guests' information extremely seriously, and we apologize for the inconvenience this incident has caused our guests," Kevin Reddy, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Noodles & Company, said in a news release.

"We continue to work with third-party forensic investigators and law enforcement officials to ensure the security of our systems on behalf of our guests."

Here's the list of affected Minnesota outlets.
