Company representatives say they're investigating all credit-card transactions run between March 24 and April 18. The chain's payment system has been hacked.

As a result the company did not provide additional information such as how many and which restaurants were affected, or what customer information may have been acquired by the supposed hackers.

The fast-casual restaurant said it recently detected unauthorized activity on its network that supports the payment system.

On Tuesday, the company made an announcement on its site warning customers of a "data security incident".

While most have been taken from its rivals, the lack of innovation hasn't affected their adoption by users. According to Instagram , their biggest event in growth-splosion was the multi-happening in April of 2012.

"We believe actions we have taken have stopped the unauthorized activity, and we have implemented additional security enhancements", a statement from Chipotle read. The company provided little details on the investigation or its findings thus far.

Chipotle plans to notify any affected customers when it gets "further clarity" about the timeframes and the restaurant locations that were affected.

If you went to Chipotle in late March or early April, your burrito may have come with a side of credit card hacking.

Customers who used a card at any Chipotle restaurant during that time are urged to "closely monitor" their bank statements and be vigilant for fraudulent or unauthoritized charges.
