U.K. Survey Sheds Light On Consumer Attitudes Toward Key Food Issues

March 3, 2011: 11:40 AM EST
A survey commissioned by the U.K.’s Food Standards Agency to obtain information on consumer attitudes toward food safety and healthy eating has found that most said they follow recommended safety practices for cleaning, cross-contamination, chilling and cooking of food, although a sizeable minority (41 percent) always wash raw meat and poultry, which is not recommended. The survey also found that many respondents were not sure of the best temperature for food storage and didn’t know how to tell whether food was unsafe to eat. On the topic of healthy eating, the survey found that most rated eating fruit and vegetables as very important, along with eating less salt and fewer foods high in saturated fat.
