There’s nothing more innocent and beautiful in this world than a Popeyes two-piece and a biscuit, but folks who have enjoyed this simple pleasure in Houston in the past year could have something to worry about after a customer data hack.

The Houston Chronicle reports that customer information, including credit and debit card information, could have been exposed in a data security breach that hit seven Houston-area outposts of the fried chicken chain. Only customers that dined at those specific locations between May 5 and August 18, 2016 were impacted.

Check out the full list of affected locations below:

  • 16425 Imperial Valley Drive, Houston
  • 2406 Bay Area Blvd., Houston
  • 1710 Highway 90, Liberty
  • 404 W. Parkwood, Friendswood
  • 9802 FM 1764, Texas City
  • 6804 Garth Road, Baytown
  • 1153 W. Main St., League City

CCC Restaurant Enterprises, the franchisee that operates the Houston-area Popeyes restaurants, told the Chron that it had resolved the breach, and that “customers can safely use their credit and debit cards at CCC Restaurant locations.”
