ORLANDO, Fla. – This grocery store brawl gives new meaning to the term food fight.

Two men got into a knock-down, drag-out fist fight in the middle of a grocery store in Orlando, Florida.

Shoppers at the Publix store were shocked when two men started throwing punches near the deli counter.

One customer caught the fight on cell phone video.

During the deli disaster, you can hear several people yelling at the pair to stop fighting.

Others tired to get in the middle to stop the beat down.

Eventually, the two were pulled apart and went their separate ways.

Publix spokesman Brian West told Local 6 in a statement, “We do not know the details that lead up to the incident, but we’re thankful that neither the customers near the incident or our associates were injured.”

According to a post on reddit, one of the men posted what happened on Facebook:

“Well I am on my way home from work minding my own business. I stopped at Publix to pick up some fried chicken for dinner. I park get out of my car and step right in the middle of a 50 year old man verbally assaulting a 9 month pregnant woman and her 16 month old daughter. I immediately go over to calm the woman down and make sure the guy didn’t physically come after her and calm the little baby down. She is holding her stomach and then the guy starts verbally assaulting me. Well anyone who knows me knows I didn’t just stand there and take it! The jerk proceeds into Publix and is three guesses at the deli where my chicken is. Before I know it her husband shows up and all hell breaks loose. Deli counters are moving, glasses flying and curse words worse than a sailor were flying. Police are called, people standing around video taping the fight. All the men are just standing around looking while I am screaming for someone to break it up! So police don’t show and I leave my name with the manager.”
