Palm City, Florida
Not resolved

Purchased raw fish at Publix's in Darwin Square, Port St. Lucie, Florida.

Employee servicing Fish Counter, was unpacking boxes and picking up trash when he saw me at counter. Came to counter, did not wash hands or put on gloves. Selected raw fish, weighed it and put it in wrapping. When I complained to new manager, RICK PORTH, about unsanitary handling, he said the bacteria on fish would be killed when I cooked it. He also suggested that I should concern myself with restaurant cooked food (and their sanitary conditions) rather than the food I purchase at Publix's. "What a ***!" The most common form of contamination from handled foods is the calcivirus, also called the Norwalk-like virus. Thousands of people die each year from this form of bacteria. I got an idea! I'll visit Mr. Porth's house and handle his raw food with dirty hands... then he can feed it to his family!

Never Again at Publixs...
