Whole Foods Says Customer Payment Information Was Hacked

FILE - Pedestrians walk past a Whole Foods Market, just down the street from the headquarters of Amazon, in Seattle, Washington, July 11, 2017.

Whole Foods says the credit and debit card information of customers who bought meals or drinks at its in-store restaurants or bars were exposed to hackers.

The grocer, which was recently acquired by Seattle-based online retailer Inc., says the data breach did not affect its main checkout registers or any shoppers.

Whole Foods did not say which of its 470 stores were affected, and a spokeswoman declined to answer any questions. The Whole Food stores that do have in-store restaurants and bars tend to be in or near cities.

Whole Foods says it is investigating the hack.
