"If you used your payment card at a Chili's restaurant between March - April, 2018, it does not mean you were affected by this incident", the company said in a statement.

The company said they believe the incident affects customers who made in-restaurant purchases between March and April of 2018. Nor how many people may have been impacted. The company said it is working with third-party forensic experts to understand the details of the incident.
