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

People in Ohio, Michigan and Texas 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.

Xerox Spokeswoman Jennifer Wasmer said in an email that it took time to restore the system and make sure it was fully functional.
