Poll: Fish, beef top concerns about food

October 21, 2008


— 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 poll about food safety.

The online survey of 1,011 adults, taken last Tuesday through Thursday, isn't a scientific random sample, doesn't statistically mirror the population and thus has no margin of error. Rather, the sample resembles a giant focus group to help see what people are thinking about a particular issue.

Nearly one out of four of those polled, 24 percent, listed fish and seafood when they were asked which food they're most concerned about when it comes to food safety.
