Foodstamp Glitch Causes Shopping Frenzy

(KCEN) -- A rude awakening for some food stamp recipients in Louisiana after they thought they had an unlimited spending limit.

The glitch prevented the store from seeing card balances.

Shelves were ransacked and aisles were clogged with carts after that food stamp system went offline.

But when shoppers realized they could only buy $100 worth of food, they abandoned their carts.
