(KTVI) – The St. Louis grocery chain Schnucks is apologizing for the attack on it’s credit card payment system.

In a message posted to the Schnucks website Friday morning, CEO Scott Schnuck said access was blocked on March 30th and that all new credit and debit cards would not be affected.

However, the CEO pointed out that any cards used before March 30th are still subject to fraud and implores card users to contact their banks for new cards with new card numbers.

Schnucks estimates 2.4 million credit and debit card numbers may have been stolen over a three month period.  That simply means they`ve that many customers were exposed during the time period that the hackers had access to the numbers.

Three class-action lawsuits have been filed against the grocery chain since the incident occurred.
