The company was informed in June of a security compromise involving credit and debit card data that had been possibly stolen from some of the restaurant’s U.S. locations during various time frames, CEO Rick Federico said in a statement on Monday.

The potentially stolen date included card numbers and, in some cases, the cardholder’s name and expiration date. It was not clear, however, whether any specific cardholder’s data had been obtained, Federico added.

In all, 33 locations around the country were affected.

The restaurant has contained the breach, and credit and debit card data has been securely processed at all locations since June 11, 2014, Federico said.

P.F. Chang’s restaurants identified in Southern California that were believed to have been part of the breach included the following locations and between the aforementioned dates:

  • Torrance (3525 Carson St.) – 10/19/2013 – 6/11/2014
  • Temecula (40762 Winchester Rd.) – 4/10/2014-6/11/2014
  • Sherman Oaks (15301 Ventura Blvd.) – 4/10/2014 – 6/11/2014
  • Rancho Cucamonga (7870 Monticello Ave.) – 4/10/2014- 6/11/2014
  • Newport Beach (1145 Newport Center Dr.) – 10/19/2013-10/26/2013

Customers potentially offered by the security compromise were being provided support and resources, including complimentary identity protection services.
