Article Photos: Xerox: Access restored for food stamp users 1/1

In this photo taken Thursday, Feb. 4, 2010, an Electronic benefit Transfer card, food stamp recipients use to purchase food, is seen at the Sacramento County Economic Development Department in Sacramento, Calif. Shoppers in Illinois and other states have been unable to use their food stamp debit cards because of an outage at the vendor that processes the payments. Xerox Corp. spokeswoman Karen Arena confirmed Saturday that some Electronic Benefits Transfer systems are experiencing temporary connectivity issues.  (AP Photo/Rich Pedroncelli, File)
