NEW YORK (AP) — Fallout from Target's pre-Christmas security breach is likely to affect the company's sales and profits well into the new year.

The company disclosed on Friday that the massive data theft was significantly more extensive and affected millions more shoppers than the company reported in December. As a result of the breach, millions of Target customers have become vulnerable to identity theft, experts say.

The nation's second largest discounter said hackers stole personal information — including names, phone numbers as well as email and mailing addresses — from as many as 70 million customers as part of a data breach it discovered last month.

Target announced on Dec. 19 that some 40 million credit and debit card accounts had been affected by a data breach that happened between Nov. 27 and Dec. 15 — just as the holiday shopping season was getting into gear.

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Over BP's objections, a federal appeals court on Friday upheld a judge's approval of the company's multibillion-dollar settlement with lawyers for businesses and residents who claim the massive 2010 oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico cost them money.

BP has argued that U.S. District Judge Carl Barbier and court-appointed claims administrator Patrick Juneau have misinterpreted settlement terms in ways that would force the London-based oil giant to pay for billions of dollars in inflated or bogus claims by businesses.

During a hearing in November before a three-judge panel of the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, a BP lawyer argued that Barbier's December 2012 approval of the deal shouldn't stand unless the company ultimately prevails in its ongoing dispute over business payments.

LIVINGSTON, Calif. (AP) — Work at a California chicken plant is to resume Saturday, ending a temporary shutdown ordered by federal inspectors who found cockroaches.

Foster Farms says it met demands by the U.S. Department of Agriculture by performing a thorough cleanup and treatment of its plant in Livingston, Calif., about 25 miles southeast of Modesto. The company says employees will be called back to work Saturday.

The plant closed Jan. 8 when inspectors found the cockroaches on five separate occasions in various parts of the plant over four months. The closure came three months after inspectors threatened a shutdown because of salmonella problems at the Livingston plant and two Foster Farms sites in Fresno.

NEW CITY, N.Y. (AP) — An attorney for actor Stephen Baldwin says the "The Usual Suspects" star has made another $100,000 installment payment on his unpaid New York taxes.

Attorney Russell Yankwitt says Friday's payment brings his total paid to $300,000. He's got $100,000 more to go.

Baldwin admitted last March that he failed to pay state taxes for 2008, 2009 and 2010.

The total bill in taxes, interest and penalties was $400,000, but Baldwin paid $100,000 before entering his guilty plea.
