Hy-Vee

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - An Iowa-based grocery chain says it's aware of reports that hacked customer account information is being sold online.

Credit and debit card information of some Hy-Vee customers is being sold on an internet site for $17 to $35 apiece.

Hy-Vee issued a statement saying it is aware of reports of the stolen information being sold and is working with payment card networks to identify the cards and work with issuing banks.

Hy-Vee acknowledge earlier this month that it detected unauthorized activity on some of its payment processing systems linked to card payments at Hy-Vee restaurants, fuel pumps and drive-thru coffee shops. The company doesn't believe the breach extended to payments systems used inside its grocery stores, drugstores and convenience stores.

Hy-Vee operates more than 240 retail stores across Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, South Dakota and Wisconsin.
