Whole Foods, the popular grocery chain that was recently acquired by Amazon, released a statement Thursday claiming to have suffered from a payment card breach.

Hackers are said to have targeted the point of sale systems used at Whole Foods taprooms and full table-service restaurants located within some stores. The company is adamant that those who shop at Whole Foods for their groceries are not affected by this POS breach. The taprooms and restaurants use a different point of sale system than the company’s primary store checkout systems.  

When Whole Foods found out about the breach, they contacted law enforcement, hired a cybersecurity firm to investigate the source of the issue, and are now taking appropriate steps to address this issue.

Whole Foods is just the latest big name to suffer from a credit card breach, following the likes of Equifax and Wendy’s.

POS systems have proven to be easy targets for criminals. That’s why organizations must have visibility of change activity within their POS systems. Starting with the implementation of a CIS Benchmark hardened build standard with precision change detection, coupled real-time contextual file integrity monitoring, will ensure that if a breach is successful, you’ll be alerted immediately and be able to take action before any serious damage is done.
