Hy-Vee investigating card system security incident

WEST DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) – An Iowa-based grocery store chain is warning customers about what it says is a security incident involving payment card systems.

Hy-Vee said Wednesday that it launched an investigation after detecting unauthorized activity and thinks the activity has ended.

The investigation focused on card payments at Hy-vee restaurants, fuel pumps and drive-thru coffee shops.

Company officials think the problem doesn’t involved payments systems used inside its grocery stores, which use encryption technology.
