SCARBOROUGH, Maine Hannaford’s chief executive officer has sent out apologies to customers for the security breach that was announced a couple of weeks ago, according to the Associated Press.
Ron Hodge sent a message to customers online and through leaflets left in grocery bags. In the note, he apologizes for the “concern and inconvenience” that was created when 4.2 million credit and debit cards were compromised. At least 1,800 cases of fraud have been reported.
Hodge went on to say that the theft has stopped and that top security experts have been brought in to the help the company against further attacks.
