Hy-Vee Announces Payment Systems Data Breach

Hy-Vee released a statement Wednesday acknowledging a data breach on several payment systems.

The grocery chain said that they found “unauthorized activity” on payment systems connected to gas pumps, drive-thru coffee shops and restaurants within their stores.

“These locations have different point-of-sale systems than those located at our grocery stores, drugstores and inside our convenience stores, which utilize point-to-point encryption technology for processing payment card transactions,” the company said in a statement.

The company said they were not going to release the locations of stores where a breach took place because it was “early in the investigation.” The release said they would contact any customers whose accounts could have been impacted by the breach.

“It is always advisable to closely monitor your payment card statements for any unauthorized activity,” the company said in their statement.
