SNAP food stamp problems resolved

Service to food stamp systems in 17 states, including Louisiana, has been restored after an outage left stores and customers scrambling Saturday.

Xerox Corp. says that access to food stamp systems has been restored in 17 states that were affected by a temporary outage.

Customers were unable to use food stamp debit-style cards for hours on Saturday. Xerox said a routine test of backup systems resulted in a temporary system failure.

A Xerox company spokeswoman said the system has been restored and is now fully functional.
