INDIANAPOLIS (Sept. 24, 2014) – Jimmy John’s customers in central Indiana should take note—the sandwich chain is the latest company affected by a data breach.

According to a news release from the company, Jimmy John’s learned about the possible breach on July 30. The problem affects credit and debit card data at stores and franchised locations.

The company said someone stole the log-in credentials from its point-of-sale vendor and used it to access information at several stores between June 16, 2014, and Sept. 5, 2014.

The problem affected 216 stores, including a dozen in Indiana. The information at risk may include the card numbers and, in some cases, the cardholder’s name, verification code and/or the card’s expiration date. The issue affects cards swiped at stores, and doesn’t include cards entered manually or online.

Jimmy John’s has since installed encrypted swipe machines for added security. It is also reviewing policies and procedures for third party vendors, the company said.

The company is offering identity protection services to customers affected by the breach. Customers should also watch their accounts for any unauthorized activity. For more information about the breach, call (855) 398-6442 or visit Jimmy John’s website.
