PHOENIX, Ariz. — An Arizona man says he was bitten by bed bugs while riding an electric cart at Walmart, ABC 15 Arizona reported.

Jose Avalos de Leon and his wife, Lupita Cruz, said they went to a Walmart at 35th Avenue and Bethany Home Road this past weekend. Avalos had an injured leg so he decided to use one of the store's motorized shopping scooters.

Avalos got off the scooter to look at the seat and saw tiny brown bugs crawling around in the seat’s crevices.  They looked at another scooter chair and found the same thing.   

Walmart released a statement regarding the incident.

“The carts have been pulled from public use, and we’re awaiting a team to arrive at the store for testing,” Walmart’s senior manager of corporate communications Charles Crowson  said in the statement.
