SCHULTHEIS, J. --Jeanne Carlyle commenced this personal injury action after she slipped and fell in a Safeway store. The court granted summary judgment and dismissed the complaint because Ms. Carlyle failed to produce facts showing Safeway had actual or constructive notice of the unsafe condition, or that the unsafe condition was reasonably foreseeable, or that Safeway failed to take reasonable care to prevent the injury. Ms. Carlyle contends summary judgment was inappropriate because the questions of foreseeability and the adequacy of Safeways housekeeping procedures are issues for the trier of fact. We affirm.
