Food Stamp Glitch Resolved

Posted: Updated:

LAWTON, Okla._

Oklahoma's Access food stamp cards were restored Sunday after a temporary outage Saturday.

People in seventeen states, including Oklahoma, found themselves unable to use their food stamp debit-style cards for hours leaving many stranded in checkout lines at stores across the country.

Xerox says a routine test of backup systems caused the temporary system failure.

The technical glitch was in no way connected to the government shutdown.
