"This survey confirms food safety is on consumers’ minds, and we want them to know it’s on our minds, as well," said James O. Reagan, Ph.D., chairman of the Beef Industry Food Safety Council and senior vice president of research, education and innovation with the N.C.B.A.
Eighty-one percent of respondents agreed the entire beef industry – from ranchers to processors and retailers – is working together to provide consumers with safe, wholesome food, when asked specifically about the beef industry’s efforts to improve beef safety. Seventy-eight percent agreed safeguards developed by beef-industry scientists have made ground beef safer than ever.
"We’re pleased that consumers recognize the work the industry is doing to protect food safety," Mr. Reagan said.
The national survey of 1,023 Americans had a margin of error of +/- 3.1% and was funded by The Beef Checkoff.
