ST. CLAIR COUNTY -- Schnuck's is facing a potential class-action lawsuit in Illinois. This comes after hackers got a hold of customer credit and debit card information.

More than 2-million accounts may have been affected. An attorney filed the lawsuit on behalf of a Belleville man.

The suit questions why it took the grocery store chain four months to notify customers. Schnuck's says it didn't learn of the problem until March 15.
