Chaos At Louisiana Walmart During EBT Outage: VIDEO

A Wal Mart in Louisiana had its shelves cleared of food during an EBT outage that occurred this weekend.  According to local news station KSLA News 12, the Wal Mart handled the outage by accepting the EBT cards without limits.  Once word spread that Wal Mart was accepting the EBT cards without a limit, EBT cardholders filled their carts and emptied the store's shelves. 

However, once the EBT system came back online and balances could be confirmed, shoppers abandoned filled shopping carts in the store.
