If you bought food, drinks or retail items at Firekeepers Casino and Hotel in Battle Creek between Sept. 7, 2014 and April 25, 2015 you may want to check your statements.

Firekeepers announced in a statement Friday that an investigation of a data-security incident at the casino revealed that about 85,000 credit and debit cards may have been affected, WZZM-13 reports. 

Firekeepers discovered the data breach April 16. The investigation confirmed the reports received from guests with concerns about their bank or credit card statements.
