PHP Checking a variable

Is there a way to check if a variable contains a value, without it matching exactly?

Meaning, I have the following line of code:
<?php
if (!empty($error_status['ExtendedStatusCd']) && $error_status['ExtendedStatusCd'] == "OFAC Hit, Score:100.00")

Open in new window

However, I would like it to check if it has "OFAC Hit"  not the rest.  Something like this:
<?php
if (!empty($error_status['ExtendedStatusCd']) && $error_status['ExtendedStatusCd'] == "OFAC Hit%")

Open in new window
