BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

Data breach hits food chain Natural Grocers

Data breach hits food chain Natural Grocers

A health food chain has reported that payment card numbers may have been compromised in a cyber data breach.

Lakewood, Colorado-based Natural Grocers by Vitamin Cottage Inc., which does business as Natural Grocers, said in a statement Wednesday that the “unauthorized intrusion” targeted limited customer payment card data.

The company said the card numbers that may have been compromised have been provided to the company's payment processor and the major credit card brands, which have been asked to take appropriate measures to monitor activity on those cards and, if necessary, notify customers of any suspicious activity.

It also said the incident has been contained and that there is no indication that PIN numbers or personally identifiable information, such as names, addresses or Social Security numbers, were involved, according to the company, which operates 93 stores in 15 states.

The company said it has accelerated the updating of its point-of-sale system in all of its store locations.

A company spokesman could not immediately be reached for comment.
