Where two households claimed the same child as a household member for the purpose of obtaining food stamp benefits, resulting in the issuance of duplicate benefits, the correct action was to recoup benefits from the head of household that falsely claimed that the child continued to reside with her, not to seek recoupment from the household in which the child actually resided.
