ASQ conducted the survey to gauge how consumers feel about food safety, food recalls and where responsibility lies when it comes to tainted food. The survey finds:
- 93 percent of adults say food manufacturers, growers or suppliers should be held legally responsible when individuals are fatally sickened by tainted food.
- 61 percent of U.S. adults feel the U.S. food recall process is only fair or poor.
- 73 percent of adults say they are as equally concerned about food safety as the war on terror.
- 82 percent of adults believe that the food industry should be required to follow international standards on food safety.
