SPOKANE, Wash. -

Earlier this month Albertsons announced a data breach affecting customers who shopped in their stores any time between June 22, 2014 and July 17, 2014. Before Friday, it was unclear which stores were impacted, but fraud investigators with Albertsons' parent company AB Acquisition LLC, say the breach impacts all stores in Washington, Idaho, and Montana. Therefore, no matter which store you shopped in during that time period, Albertsons says your information could be at risk.

The fraud investigators say the information that could have possibly been stolen includes debit and credit card information, including account numbers, expiration dates, and customer names. If you used a debit card, fraud investigators say it is also possible that your checking account number could be part of the breach.

Albertsons is offering free consumer identity protection services. If you need more information on the service you can call AllClear ID at 1-855-865-4449.

If you are not sure if you shopped at Albertsons during the time of the security breach, investigators recommend looking through your credit card or bank statements to check the date of your purchases. At this time, there is no evidence that the stolen information has been used.

Investigators also recommend closely monitoring your accounts and requesting a free credit report from one of the three credit agencies. For more information visit www.annualcreditreport.com or call 1-877-322-8228. They recommend requesting one credit report now from one agency, then waiting four months before requesting another one from a second agency. The three agencies that provide a free credit report are below:

Equifax

P.O. Box 740241

Atlanta, GA 30374

888-766-0008
