Merriann Metz Publix Legal Counsel Bad Faith

Merriann Metz Publix Legal Counsel Bad Faith

Merriann Metz, legal counsel for Publix, and her predecessor John Attaway, embrace food safety violations, consumer fraud and negligence as an acceptable business practice at the Fortune 100 grocery store.

As a Florida born citizen pursuing the health and wellbeing of my fellow Floridians and Americans across the many states where Publix grocery stores are based and operate, I was appalled by the several food safety violations I encountered when shopping at the Publix in Orlando, FL (located on Curry Ford Road and Conway Road). To add insult to injury, quite shockingly, Publix showed no remorse for its blatant disregard of public health, neither giving me an apology thereafter, nor any settlement whatsoever to right its wrongs.

Among the many food safety violations Publix has ignored and in bad faith denied, refusing to acknowledge my injuries, pain and suffering as a result of their negligence are the following:
– Publix frozen cherries containing several cherry pits which damaged my teeth (although the product packaging claimed the cherries were without pits).
– Maggots in a rotisserie chicken, which I ate over half of, before finding the maggots in the bird.
– Rotten apples and garlic (the latter quite shocking as the shelf life for garlic is usually several weeks).

As a personal friend to one of Florida’s largest citrus supplier to Publix, I have been told in conversations that Publix buys produce and thereafter refrigerates and stores it to use for several months after the acquisition of said produce (making it unhealthy and questionable as to its freshness). I have personally seen rotten oranges and apples on Publix shelves and in bags for sale at Publix supermarkets for years.

I also have walked and rode my bicycle behind Publix grocery stores from Orlando to Homestead, FL and spoken to employees who verify having seen rats and cockroaches around the entry points wherein Publix brings food into its grocery stores.

As to the financials regarding my injuries, beyond the pain and suffering, along with the exposure to maggots which I ingested that can forever hinder and infest my digestive and immune systems impairing long-term bodily functions; the quantifiable is as follows. My dentists in Orlando, FL and California who both examined my teeth, told me repairs will range from $8,000 to $10,000 …but the repairs themselves are only guaranteed to last for up to 10 years and often need additional work thereafter every 10 years.

I provided these images and dental reports to Publix claims adjusters, but was ignored and my claim denied.

I understand Mr. John Attaway has retired and been succeeded by Mrs. Merriann Metz. Yet both have proven to be heartless and unwilling to right the wrongs of Publix when customers suffer injuries due to the grocer’s and its employees’ negligence. Therefore I urge consumers not to waste their time contacting claims adjusters at Publix, but rather aggressively litigate and launch a CLASS ACTION against Publix for bad faith and ongoing gross negligence.

As an educator who has earned Master degrees in Health (U of Alabama) and Global Food Law (Michigan State College of Law), along with having written books on the topic; I am deeply passionate about the health and public safety. Therefore all financials aside, I am happy to serve as an expert witness in any future litigation against Publix and welcome government agencies or any consumer to contact me for assistance.

Thank you consumers, health officials and government agency leaders for all you do to keep Florida consumers safe and our food products up to the quality as advertised by grocers.

Keep Publix and its legal counsel Merriann Metz honest. Remember for profit corporations and their legal counsel rarely see the light until they first feel the heat.

May the unquenchable all-consuming fiery passion and truth of God be with the righteous to hold the wicked to account.

Why Christian Retail Book Market Self-Help Books Get Attention of Wal-Mart, Target, & Grocery Stores

Christian retail is a hot market. Mainstream stores such as Wal-Mart, Target, and even grocery stores throughout the nation are profiting from the sale of Christian books, music, and DVDs.

http://www.PaulFDavis.com – author of God vs. Religion


Wal-Mart, the world’s largest retailer, brings in annual sales from Christian merchandise in excess of $1 billion annually. It shouldn’t come as a surprise from both a business and values based perspective. Wal-Mart’s founder Sam Walton always wanted to reflect the values of his customers and uphold morality to support their local community.

With Wal-Mart, Target, and grocery stores such as Publix in the south selling Christian books and merchandise, consumers have more options. That means the some 8,000 small Christian retailers scattered across the U.S. can no longer charge obscene retail prices for wholesome God fearing merchandise. This is good for consumers. Furthermore where the big retailers like Wal-Mart and Target fail to have product depth, smaller retailers can provide additional attention to Christian customers seeking enriching spiritual materials and music.

Why are Christian self-help books and music flourishing across the country and getting the attention of major retailers?

1. People are spiritually hungry and not being sufficiently fed on Sundays at church.

Most people physically eat three meals a day. How then spiritually can we be expected to live on one small snack a week spiritually? Many churches don’t allow for very long sermons any more. Pastors are afraid people will leave and therefore have shortened their messages. Many in the pulpit are trying to be entertaining and thereby have minimized their ability to equip and empower God’s people.

Those who are spiritually hungry are therefore running to Christian bookstores to obtain edifying and enriching materials to empower them to serve God. Beyond churchgoers are those spiritually desirous of a relationship with God who never attend church. They too are seeking stimulating spiritual material to awaken and feed their spirit.

2. As the world gets increasingly troublesome and America becomes all the more engrossed in a global war on terror, people are fearing for their lives.

As life becomes more precious and sacred once again, people are awakening to their mortality and becoming spiritual. People want to know about the end-times, the end of the age, how they ought to live, and want to be adequately prepared for major global occurences lest they be caught unaware.

3. Marriages and families are falling apart like never before.

As marriages and the family structure is disintegrating due to increased immorality throughout the land, many are running back to the Bible and its ageless truths. When your life, marriage, and family begins falling apart you will humble yourself and seek help. Many are doing so through self-help Christian books with timeless truths.

4. Parents are having a difficult time rearing their children in a secularized culture that is trying to swallow them up.

MTV, hip-hop music, dance clubs, ghetto dress codes, and foul talking youth are frightening parents. Many are seeking guidance from spiritual authors who address issues they face on a daily basis. Tough talk is needed and when Pastors shun their responsibility, mature parents run to bookshelves seeking answers and guidance.

The Christian retail industry is estimated to be a $3 billion business annually, according to the Christian Booksellers Association. Beyond Bibles and books, retailers are doing very well selling Christian apparel, music, videos, gifts, artwork, software and a variety of children’s products.

Christians want to follow the great commandment given by Jesus to love their neighbor and seek to begin by showing them the way to salvation through Christ. Creating a culture of our own, Christians and retailers are successfully impacting the world and awaking the lost to the reality of the risen Christ. Nothing is more satisfying than to see people excited about the love of God and newness of life in Christ.
