Confidence in food safety slipping among Americans, according to new survey; safety tops list of consumer priorities, followed by affordability

LOS ANGELES , November 1, 2011 () – According to a new survey by the Center for Food Integrity, confidence in food safety is slipping among Americans, Food Safety News reported Oct. 31.

The survey found that food safety topped the list of consumer priorities but also found lower confidence in safety among consumers. The confidence level reached a low point in 2008 after an undercover video showed animal abuse at a California meatpacking plant, sparking the largest-ever meat recall.

Affordability was second on the list in terms of consumer priorities, according to the survey.
