CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

Computers containing customer credit and debit card information were hacked at Jewel Osco stores in Illinois and Indiana, the company announced Friday morning.

According to Jewel's parent company, AB Acquisition LLC, the unauthorized access may have occurred anywhere from June 22, 2014 to July 17, 2014.

It is not yet clear if anyone's card data was stolen during the hack. At this time, there does not appear to be any evidence of misuse of cardholder's data.

According to the company, law enforcement authorities have been notified and and IT service provider is working to investigate the incident.

“As soon as we were notified of the incident, we began working closely with SUPERVALU to determine what happened. It's important to note that there is no evidence at this point that consumer data has been misused,” Mark Bates, the Senior VP of AB Acquisition LLC said.

Officials say the intrusion has been contained. The company says an investigation into the incident is ongoing and more details will be available by Saturday.
