DETROIT (WKZO) -- Thousands of people who use food-stamp assistance across the country were without use of their Bridge Cards Saturday after a glitch in the system.

Xerox, which runs the system, says the problem affected 17 states including Michigan.  Xerox says they were running a routine test on their system which led to the glitch, but were able to fix the problem after several hours Saturday.

The shutdown not only caused problems for users, but also many store owners in Detroit who rely on the majority of their business that comes from Bridge Card users.
