P.F. Chang's swiping debit and credit card manually following breach

P.F. Chang's is now swiping credit and debit cards manually, following news of a data breach

Following news of a data breach, P.F. Chang's is temporarily swiping all credit and debit cards manually, trying to prevent another data breach. The procedure is now being done at all of its U.S. restaurants, and customers will now receive carbon copies of receipts. The restaurant still hasn't released additional details about the security incident.

"We have moved to a manual credit card imprinting system," confirmed Rick Federico, P.F. Chang's president, in a statement to journalists. "This ensures our guests can still use their credit and debit cards safely in our restaurants as our investigation continues."

 

It adds even more pressure to restaurant managers, but will be more secure until P.F. Chang's is able to sort out the problem. The breach is now being investigated by banks and law enforcement, with P.F. Chang's also running its own internal investigation.
