19 Sprouts stores the victim of malware attack

Posted: Updated:

Sprouts Farmer's Market announced Friday that 19 of the stores were attacked by sophisticated malware, possibly compromising customers' credit and debit card information.

The attack occurred between Jan. 25 and January 29, 2013, depending on the store. Sprouts believes fewer than 2 percent of customers were affected. Sprouts is working with law enforcement and credit card companies involved to determine if accounts were affected.

"After a thorough investigation conducted by the company along with a nationally recognized data security firm, we are unable at this point to confirm with certainty whether any accounts were in fact compromised," Sprouts stated.
