(Meredith) -- St. Louis bakery-chain Panera Bread is under fire for leaking eight-months worth of customer records from its website, according to a report by KrebsOnSecurity.
The article said the data breach includes customer names, email addresses, home addresses, birthdays, as well as the last four digits of credit card numbers.
The blog post stated the leak affects millions of customer's credit card information. Panera refuted this claim Monday, stating, "fewer than 10,000 consumers have been potentially affected by this issue."
Panera Bread told KMOV that the breach has since been resolved:
Panera takes data security very seriously and this issue is resolved. Following reports today of a potential problem on our website, we suspended the functionality to repair the issue. Our investigation is continuing, but there is no evidence of payment card information nor a large number of records being accessed or retrieved. Our investigation to date indicates that fewer than 10,000 consumers have been potentially affected by this issue and we are working diligently to finalize our investigation and take the appropriate next steps.
Panera operates more than 2,000 stores in the U.S. The breach comes only days after Under Armour said its MyFitnessPal app exposed the data of roughly 150 million users.
The company, which competes with Chipotle Mexican Grill Inc, was acquired by privately owned German conglomerate JAB Holding in 2017.
