NEW YORK — P.F. Chang's Chain Bistro confirmed Friday that it had been the victim of a data breach in which data was stolen from customers’ credit and debit cards used at its restaurants.
The company first learned about the security breach on Tuesday, and then "initiated an investigation with the United States Secret Service and a team of third-party forensics experts to understand the nature and scope of the incident, and while the investigation is still ongoing, we have concluded that data has been compromised," stated P.F. Chang's CEO Rick Federico, CEO, P.F. Chang, Scottsdale, Ariz.
