MARYLAND HEIGHTS, Mo. (AP) - The suburban St. Louis-based grocery store chain Schnucks says a November audit found it was in compliance with industry standards for data security.
Schnucks said last month that it was the victim of hackers that somehow gained access to credit card and debit card information of customers. The chain is working with police, attorneys general in Missouri and Illinois, the U.S. Secret Service and the FBI.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch (http://bit.ly/151wLkE ) reports that Schnucks says a November audit showed it met standards required from companies that accept credit cards. The company says it has found and contained the breach, but advises customers to continue monitoring their accounts for fraudulent charges.
