Supervalu Says Hackers May Have Stolen U.S. Customers’ Data

Supervalu Inc., a U.S. supermarket chain concentrated in the Midwest, suffered a data breach that exposed customers’ payment-card information, marking the latest hacker attack on the retail industry.

The data may have been stolen from cards used in Supervalu stores from June 22 to July 17 following a network intrusion, the Eden Prairie, Minnesota-based company said in a statement today. Payment companies have been notified and law-enforcement agencies are investigating the breach, which affected 180 Supervalu markets and liquor stores, it said.
