REVERSED AND RENDERED

In this slip and fall case, we must decide whether Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. (“Wal-Mart”) had actual notice of a cooking oil spill, and, if so, whether it exercised reasonable care to reduce or eliminate the risk. Wal-Mart appeals the trial court’s judgment in favor of Alma Delia Chavez (“Chavez”). In three points of error, Wal-Mart argues: (1) the evidence is legally and factually insufficient to support the jury’s finding of actual or constructive knowledge; (2) the evidence is legally and factually insufficient to support the jury’s finding that Wal-Mart did not exercise reasonable care to reduce or eliminate the risk; and (3) the evidence is legally and factually insufficient to support the jury’s finding of proximate cause. We find the evidence is legally insufficient to show that Wal-Mart failed to exercise reasonable care to reduce or eliminate the risk.
