Whole Foods Market, the supermarket chain acquired recently by Amazon for $13.7 billion, informed customers this week that it has launched an investigation after learning that some of its point-of-sale (PoS) systems may have been hacked.
The company has provided only few details as the investigation is ongoing. However, it said the incident appears to impact taprooms and full table-service restaurants located within some of its stores.
Whole Foods pointed out that these venues rely on different PoS systems than the store that houses them. The affected payment systems are also not connected to Amazon.com, the company said.
