PIZZA GUY, a fast-casual chain in Dublin that has been criticised for using fake ingredients in its pies, has released a statement saying it has been the victim of a “cyber attack”.
The statement, which was published on the company’s website on Tuesday evening, said it had received “a cyber attack” from a Chinese person claiming to be responsible for the attack.
It said it is working to repair the damage and has issued a statement on the matter.
In January, the company apologised for using a “false” brand of sausage.
It also said it was working to remove the false information from its website.
The statement from Pizza Guy said the company had taken “immediate action to remove” the cyber attack and that it had begun “investigating” the alleged cyber attack.
The company said it would “continue to update our customers about our operations and the process to remove any trace of this malicious activity”.
The pizza giant said it has had “some issues” with the use of fake ingredients.
In a statement, it said the fake ingredients used in the pizzas had not been identified by the supplier.
“We are currently investigating this matter and will take any necessary action as required,” it said.
