WASHINGTON What's the scariest food in your kitchen? Fish. The second scariest? Beef.

What food looks safest? Cheese.

Those are among the findings of a new Ipsos/McClatchy online survey about food safety.

The survey of 1,011 adults was taken last Tuesday through Thursday.

The results:

FOOD SAFETY CONCERNS

Fish and seafood (24 percent); beef (23 percent); vegetables (20 percent); chicken (18 percent); fruits (5 percent); pork (5 percent); milk (4 percent); cheese (1 percent).

U.S. FOOD-SAFETY EFFORTS

A grade of A (11 percent); a B (43 percent); a C (34 percent); a D (9 percent) an F (3 percent).

IMPORTED VS. DOMESTIC

By a large margin, 79 percent to 21 percent, participants said imported food was the primary cause of worry rather than domestically produced food.

WHO'S RESPONSIBLE?

Most responsible for policing food, regardless of its source:

Food-processing companies (81 percent) or federal government inspectors (79 percent).
