Heck, I'm normally a defender of WalMart because I actually like the place. But in this case, this was mainly their fault. They should have did what pretty much every other food store in the country did, either not allow EBT purchases until they verified the system was fixed or set up the limit of $50 that seems to be the standard (and a pretty reasonable amount). Instead, they chose something that caused a lot of purchases to be made that should not have been allowed. They probably figure that the food stamps program will pay them and the government won't hold them responsible.
