FLEMINGTON, NJ – The Wendy’s fast-food chain released a list yesterday of more than 1,000 of its restaurants affected by a recent data breach that exposed customers’ debit and credit card information to potential security attacks, the third such incident this year.
“Based on the facts known to Wendy’s at this time, the additional malware targeted the following payment card data: cardholder name, credit or debit card number, expiration date, cardholder verification value, and service code,” the company reported in a news release.
The release also specified the breach was limited to some franchisee-owned locations, and that company-owned restaurants were not affected.
In New Jersey about 70 locations were affected by the breach, but the Wendy’s site on Route 31 in Flemington was not on the list.
Fraud consultation and identity restoration services have been made available to customers who may have used a payment card at affected locations.
For the complete list of affected locations, visit the Wendy's website established for that purpose.
Todd Penegor, President and CEO of The Wendy’s Company issued a statement about the breach which Wendy's posted to its site.
Customers can call 866-779-0485, 9 a.m. to 6:30 p.m., Monday through Friday to receive additional information regarding accessing the fraud consultation and identity restoration services.
