Chick-fil-A: No evidence of data breach

ATLANTA -- Atlanta-based Chick-fil-A announced this week there is no evidence the company was hit with a data breach.

Watchdog blog Krebs on Security reported in December that several financial institutions traced an overall pattern of credit card fraud to accounts used at Chick-fil-A locations across the U.S.

Chick-fil-A conducted an internal investigation into the possible breach and released a statement once it ended:

In December of 2014, Chick-fil-A received reports from its payment industry contacts of potential usual activity involving payment cards used at a few of our restaurants. Following the receipt of these reports, Chick-fil-A launched a comprehensive investigation to determine whether any compromise of its payment systems had occurred. That investigation has now closed, and Chick-fil-A is happy to report that there was no evidence of a compromise of Chick-fil-A's systems and we have no reason to believe that any customer's payment information was stolen or at risk of being stolen from Chick-fil-A.
