Whole Foods Discloses Credit Card Breach

Whole Foods' restaurants, taprooms hit by credit card data hack

Whole Foods has been in Western New York for only about two weeks, but now the major grocery chain is reporting it has been hacked. That kale salad isn't sounding quite as appetizing now, is it?

"The company's investigation is ongoing and it will provide additional updates as it learns more", the statement continued. "The Amazon.com systems do not connect to these systems at Whole Foods Market", it says.

In response to Gizmodo's inquiry on Thursday, Whole Foods declined to say how many of its stores may have been involved or where they were located. That said, the company notes that it is working with "a leading cybersecurity forensics firm" as well as law enforcement to figure out exactly how this all went down. However, it noted that most of its locations don't have taprooms or restaurants.

Whole Foods, the upmarket USA supermarket chain recently acquired by Amazon, has admitted to a point-of-sale data breach compromising customers' credit and debit card details.

Jeff Sessions defends Trump's criticism of National Football League protests

Hackers targeted "point of sale systems" - or the machines where customers swipe or insert their cards - in order to steal the data, according to the press release. In an increasingly challenged market, being seen as the grocery store of the elite was bad for business.

Whole Foods couldn't be immediately reached for comment. But if you've visited a Whole Foods restaurant lately, it definitely wouldn't hurt to take a quick look at your credit card bill.

Whole Foods has 17 stores in North Carolina, including those in Durham, Raleigh, Cary, and Chapel Hill in the Triangle area.
