The popular chain has issued an apology and provided a number for those concerned to call.
Target confirmed Thursday that previous reports about the unauthorized access of customers’ credit card data were true.
In a press release posted on the Target website, the Minneapolis-based retailer admitted that approximately 40 million credit and debit card accounts may have been impacted by the breach.
Affected customers made purchases in U.S. stores from Nov. 27 to Dec. 15, 2013.
Target is currently working with law enforcement and financial institutions to resolve the issue.
