KANSAS CITY, Mo.— Economic issues continue to top the list of consumer concerns, according to the most recent consumer survey by the Center for Food Integrity (CFI). 

Food safety was the highest rated non-economic issue for the second consecutive year, and again rated higher than consumer concern over military involvement in Iraq and Afghanistan. 

“This is consistent with the results of our national focus group research in April,” said Terry Fleck, CFI executive director. “Consumers told us their priorities are food that is safe, affordable and nutritious. The number and frequency of high profile food safety incidents over the past several years results in heightened consumer awareness.”

Complete survey results will be released at the CFI 2009 Food System Summit, October 6-7 in Kansas City.
