Officials say they learned of a data breach on May 11 that resulted in customers' payment information being compromised from some Chili's restaurants.

The company that owns Chili's Bar & Grill is saying some customer's payment card information has been comprised at certain restaurant locations.

We deeply value our relationships with our Guests and sincerely apologize to those who may have been affected.

Dallas, Texas-based Brinker International - which operates over 1,600 Chili's outlets worldwide - said that some of the chain's restaurants have been involved in the incident, which is believed to have taken place between March and April this year.

We are convinced this decision creates a platform and an opportunity to promote a peace process based on realities, not fantasies. However, it is also a disputed territory, contested by both Israel and Palestine, which sees it as a capital of its future state.

They said that malware was used to gather card information including credit and debit card numbers and names of cardholders. Brinker said it is working with third-party forensic experts to determine those who were affected at certain restaurants and guests.

We are working diligently to address this issue and our priority will continue to be doing what is right for our Guests. An investigation is ongoing.

Chili's Bar and Grill has suffered a data breach. The statement confirmed that no personal data such as social security numbers or dates of birth was breached as the company does not collect that type of information.

Credit fraud resolution and credit monitoring services will be provided to customers, according to the statement, but details have not been finalized.
