CLEARWATER, FL (WFLA) -

Popular Asian restaurant P.F. Chang's is providing more details on its ongoing investigation into a security breach, saying data may have been stolen from certain credit and debit cards used during an eight-month period, between October of last year and early June.

According to the restaurant's website, the Clearwater restaurant, located in Countryside Mall at 27001 US Highway 19 N, and the Winter Park restaurant, located at 436 North Orlando Avenue, were included in the data breach.

Winter Park customers may have been affected between Oct. 19, 2013 - June 11, 2014 and Clearwater customers may have been affected between April 10, 2014 - June 11, 2014.

P.F. Chang's confirmed in June that data from credit and debit cards used at its restaurants was stolen, but didn't specify the locations at that time. On Monday the company provided a list of 33 locations nationwide. In addition to Clearwater and Winter Park, these also include P.F. Chang's restaurants in Baltimore; St. Louis; Pittsburgh; Austin, Texas; and Charlotte, North Carolina.

A list of all 33 locations, as well as the dates that cards may have been compromised, can be found at pfchangs.com/security.

The company said that potentially stolen data includes the card number and may also include the cardholder's name and/or the card's expiration date in some instances.

P.F. Chang's recommends customers check their credit reports. If anything unusual is found, contact the state Attorney General's Office.

P.F. Chang's said that it's continuously working to understand the nature and scope of the incident. It says the security compromise has been contained and that it has been processing credit and debit card data securely since June 11.

The restaurant operator noted that as the investigation continues it may identify other locations where data may have been compromised or other date ranges.

P.F. Chang's China Bistro Inc., based in Scottsdale, Arizona, owns its namesake restaurants and Pei Wei Asian Diners. The company was taken private in 2012 by Centerbridge partners LP for about $1.1 billion.
