Fresno Whole Foods exposes customer credit card information for holiday orders

Fresno’s lone Whole Foods Market is in a bit of hot water after a video was released showing employees exposing customer information – including credit card details – at the chain’s “Holiday Table.”

Employees are seen taking orders over the phone at the store’s Holiday Table, where customers are able to place holiday meal orders.

However, the employees are typing customer information, from names and mailing addresses to credit card numbers and security codes, on a public-facing computer monitor.

Watch Whole Foods expose customers’ credit card information:

The video was filmed by J. Colin Peterson, a Fresno IT executive, at the Amazon-owned grocery outpost in Fig Garden Village.

As first reported by the Visalia Times-Delta, Peterson filmed the data breach during a last-minute shopping jaunt one day before Thanksgiving.

Peterson told the Times-Delta he didn’t alert Whole Foods management since employees were plainly aware of his recording.
