Foodstamp Glitch Causes Shopping Frenzy

Posted: Updated:

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

A Louisiana Walmart allowed people to continue shopping despite a glitch in the food stamp system.

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.
