New Orleans -- The Louisiana Department of Children and Family Services has announced that service to SNAP EBT cards has been fully restored, following an outage. The outage was part of a nation-wide problem where shoppers were unable to use their cards. The outage began at 11:00 a.m. Saturday. 

According to a DCFS press release, the transactional system used by the DCFS was impacted by Saturday's outage, but the system that they use to track card usage and fraud was not.
