Electronic glitch results in Walmart Xerox squabble
U.S. - Walmart and Xerox are trading blame over a glitch that temporarily lifted spending limits for food stamp recipients.
People flocked to stores and filled carts full of food.
When they were told the "No limit" was a mistake, they abandoned the food-filled carts leaving employees to clean up the mess.
Xerox, a vendor using the Electric Benefit Transfer system, says the problem has been fixed.
But now it's unclear who will foot the bill for the unauthorized spending.
