TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) -- Chipotle Mexican Grill is alerting customers who visited the restaurant earlier this year about a data breach. Chiptole says customers may have had their credit card information stolen as part of a nationwide hack.

Chipotle said in a statement, "The investigation identified the operation of malware designed to access payment card data from cards used on point-of-sale (POS) devices at certain Chipotle restaurants between March 24, 2017 and April 18, 2017."

The hack included thousands of Chipotle locations across the country, including here in our area.

Chipotle's website lists three locations in Tallahassee as being affected, and the dates that the restaurants were impacted:

  • 3425 Thomasville Road -- 3/26/2017–4/18/2017

  • 1801 West Tennessee St. -- 3/26/2017–4/18/2017

  • 1498 Apalachee Parkway, Suite 16 -- 3/26/2017–4/18/2017
  • Chipotle is recommending that customers who think they might have been affected review their statements and report any unauthorized charges to the card company.
