(KGTV) - Whole Foods Market announced Friday a debit and credit card data breach at some grocery stores.

Card information was accessed at taprooms and table-service restaurants within Whole Foods stores, the chain said.

Whole Foods said its primary store checkout systems were not affected because those registers use different point of sale systems.

The company said it launched an investigation with the help of a leading cyber security forensics firm, contacted law enforcement, and took appropriate measures to address the issue.

Whole Foods’ investigation is ongoing and will provide additional updates, according to the chain. Transactions on have not been impacted.

Whole Foods is encouraging customers to monitor their payment card statements and report unauthorized charges to their banks.
