Unclear if Hy-Vee data breach affects MO shoppers

It may be some time before we learn whether any Missouri Hy-Vee stores were part of a data breach.

The company announced yesterday that a possible security breach, involving its payment processing systems, had occurred at their side businesses.  Those include fuel pumps, drive-thru coffee shops, and restaurants.

Hy-Vee says, at this time, it doesn't appear to have occurred at any of their grocery stores, drugstores, or convenience stores.

Hy-Vee says the investigation is in its early stages, so specific timelines and locations will be announced at a later date.

In the meantime, you're urged to closely monitor your payment card statements for unauthorized activity.
