WACO - State officials ordered Caritas of Waco to destroy 43 boxes of non-food donations received from the regional Walmart.

It reportedly happened because the group was not authorized to accept or distribute them.

Officials say the organization has received donated goods from Walmart's "Gifts-in-Kind program since 2004.

However, their license does not permit them to accept certain items like over the counter medications and medical devices.

Caritas also had to get rid of certain hygiene items like toothpaste and baby bottles.
