Some of the locations on the list are:

    • Glastonbury
    • Hamden
    • Manchester
    • Milford
    • New Haven
    • West Haven
    • Wallingford

Anyone who visited Chipotle between March 24 and April 18 may have had their account information stolen.

CT BBB’s Howard Schwartz said customers need to be vigilant. Go over your credit score and credit card statements.

“The very first thing you should do is go and check your credit card and your banking statements because it may show whether or not you became a victim who’s already had that information used,” said Schwartz. “Consumers can’t be gatekeepers for the companies that handle our information. What consumers can do is make sure they protect their own information.”
