Supervalu data breach: What this means for you

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Check your wallet. A data breach has been reported at a number of Supervalu stores, including some in Missouri.

The grocery chain says account numbers, expiration dates, cardholders' names and other information may have been stolen.

The breach happened not only at grocery stores, but also at some of its stand-alone liquor shops. Missouri is on a list of five states impacted by the breach. Kansas is not on the list.

Supervalu is still investigating if any data was actually stolen. To protect yourself from fraud, check your credit and debit card statement on a line-by-line basis.

  • Report any questionable charge, no matter how small.
  • If you notice an unauthorized charge, ask your bank or credit card company to cancel the card and issue a new one. Some places offer free credit-monitoring services.
  • Double-check the URL of the bank or retailer in any correspondence you receive. If it doesn't look right, don't click on it.
  • And if you receive strange documents in the mail, it might mean nothing, but it could also be a sign that your data has been compromised.
