A manager with the Poteau Walmart said on Monday that a widely-circulated post on Facebook claiming razor blades had been discovered on shopping carts at the store is false.

According to online news reports, razor blades have been reported on shopping carts at Walmart locations in Missouri and New Mexico. One such Facebook post regarding our area Walmart has seen shares of more than 100, and a second more than 70, by Monday afternoon.

Senior Manager of Corporate Communications with Walmart, Charles Crowson, in an official statement reverberated the manager's comment.

"We take these claims seriously as we work to maintain a safe atmosphere for everyone at our store," Crowson said. "We haven’t been approached by any customers reporting to have found anything on our shopping carts. If they do, we encourage them to immediately find a member of management."
