Hy-Vee said Wednesday that it's investigating unauthorized activity on some of its payment processing systems.

The company said the incident involved payment systems focused on transactions at some Hy-Vee fuel pumps, drive-thru coffee shops and restaurants, which include Market Grilles, Market Grille Expresses and Wahlburger locations the company owns and operates. Those locations have different systems than those used at the company's grocery stores, drugstores and convenience stores, Hy-Vee said.


According to Hy-Vee, law enforcement was notified, as were payment card networks, and cybersecurity firms were consulted for help. The company said it believes the actions taken have stopped the unauthorized activity.

Hy-Vee said it believes payment card transactions utilized at front-end checkout lanes, pharmacies, customer service counters, wine & spirits locations, floral departments, clinics and other food service areas, or on Aisles Online, aren't involved in the incident.

However, the company urged customers to monitor payment card statements for any unauthorized activity. The investigation into the incident remains ongoing.
