Noodles officials warned customers in May that their credit card processor reported unusual activity to customers’ credit and bank cards. The breach began around January 2016.

The lawsuit was filed on behalf of credit unions, banks, and other financial institutions that claim they have suffered injury as a result of the security breach.

The suit alleges that Noodles failed to implement or maintain adequate data security measures for customer information.
