Back in late January, Wendy's announced it had experienced a credit card security breach. Today, the company said two of them are in Kalamazoo and Calhoun counties.
Here's a link that Wendy's has set up to check if your credit card information was stolen.
It shows the Wendy's in Marshall and in Schoolcraft to have been affected locally; the Marshall location from Jan. 13, 2016 to June 8th and Schoolcraft began on October 31st, 2015 through June 8th, when a second variant of malware was discovered.. There were many more locations affected outside of the Kalamazoo-Battle Creek area.
Initial reports on the breach estimated about 300 stores had been hacked, but Wendy's today said it was 1,025. The company said it is offering free one-year credit monitoring to people who paid with a card at any of those restaurants.
On their website, Wendy's said customers may call a toll-free number (866) 779-0485, 8:00 am to 5:30 pm CST, Monday through Friday (excluding major holidays) to receive additional information on the incident as well as accessing the fraud consultation and identity restoration services.
