Landry’s restaurant group hit by credit card breach

Published: Updated:

(CBS News)- Landry’s, the owner of restaurants such as McCormick and Schmick’s, Rain Forest Cafe, and Bubba Gump Shrimp, among other dining destinations, says the chain was hit by a credit card breach.

The Houston-based chain owns more than 500 different properties across the country.
Beginning in March of 2014 and ending in December of last year, the company says its credit card system was breached.

Account numbers on magnetic strip cards used at some of the chain’s locations appear to have been stolen and used to make large purchases at Best Buy, Target and other retailers.

Landry’s is urging customers to closely monitor their credit card statements. If you think an unauthorized purchase was made, contact your bank. If you have questions or concerns, call 877-238-2151 toll-free. For a list of affected locations, click here.
