A Michigan credit union will not allow its members to use its debit and credit cards at Wendy’s. America 1, based in Jackson, Mich., said in a blog post on its website that it recorded losses related to Wendy’s recent data breach, which began last year and carried through this past spring, from 18,000 of its 47,000 issued cards. The credit union claims its losses equal those in the wake of the 2014 data breach at Home Depot.
