Chang's China Bistro confirmed on Thursday that credit and debit card data has been stolen from some of its restaurants. What's interesting, and somewhat humorous, is that the company said that it has switched over to manual credit card imprinting systems for all of its restaurants located in the continental United States.

Chang's and used a payment card in the last several months should monitor their accounts and report any suspected fraudulent activity to their card company.
