Publix Does Not Discount Meat

I learned something interesting at Publix last night. There have been quite a number of blogs recently that suggested that to get the best meat prices you should ask your butcher when they discount meat. I thought it was a great idea so in passing I asked the butcher who was removing meat from the shelf when they would discount it. He said "never." Apparently a homeless man in Florida bought some discounted meat and got sick from it. He sued and won a large settlement, thus, Publix will no longer discount any meat. It stays on the shelf as is until it is tossed. What a shame.
