New Survey Shows Americans are Still Concerned About Food Safety, Yet Still Not Smart About What They Like to Eat
Date:9/4/2007

9 Out of 10 Americans are as Concerned or More Concerned Than Last Year

About Contracting Food-Borne Illnesses

LANSING, Ill., Sept. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- As September's National Food Safety Month kicks off, a new survey of 2,500 Americans reveals that 93 percent of Americans are as concerned or more concerned than they were last year about contracting food-borne illnesses.

The study, conducted by TNS, a world leader in market research and commissioned by National Pasteurized Eggs, also revealed that 96 percent of Americans say that media coverage has contributed to keeping or increasing that concern over the past year.

"If Americans are still concerned about food-borne illness, the best thing they can do is to continue to educate themselves about safe handling and cooking procedures that will keep them, and their families, free from these illnesses," says Debra Holtzman, nationally recognized food safety expert and best-selling author of "The Safe Baby: A-Do-It-Yourself Guide to Home Safety" (Sentient Publications).

In addition to naming meats, fruits and vegetables as sources of food-borne illness, the survey showed that 81 percent of respondents know that eggs are a known cause of salmonella poisoning, a major food-borne illness, if they are consumed raw or undercooked. Still, 57 percent of Americans report eating eggs that are not fully cooked as their preferred style, including those prepared sunny side up, over easy or as Eggs Benedict.

While cooking can destroy salmonella, less than two percent of Americans can accurately report the internal temperature to which an egg should be cooked in order to eliminate salmonella: 160 degrees, according to U.S. Department of Agriculture, Food Safety and Inspection Services; and U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), raw or undercooked eggs are responsible for more than 118,000 cases of salmonella annua
