SHORT PUMP, Va. -- A shopper said he believed there was a problem at Whole Foods after his credit card information was stolen not once - but twice. Don Anderson said he shopped at the Short Pump Whole Foods on July 21. A few days later, he received a call from his credit card company informing him his card had been used in Maryland.

His card was then cancelled and a replacement card was issued.

The next week, Anderson said he shopped at Whole Foods again. After his grocery shopping trip, his credit card company called to report his card was used in Missouri.

"Both credit cards were used the last time at Whole Foods, prior to being used in Maryland and Missouri. So I'm under the impression there's a problem at Whole Foods," Anderson said.

When asked for a comment on Anderson's situation, Whole Foods provided the following statement:

We take the safety and security of our customers very seriously, and we investigate every report our customers provide to us.

A Whole Foods spokesperson said they would report their findings once the investigation was complete. If you feel like you've had your credit card information stolen, click here to email in a news tip.
