Do you think more could be done by companies to prevent foodborne illnesses in the restaurant, grocery and farming industries?

  • Yes, there can be more done to prevent foodborne illness.

    It's not surprising when someone gets sick from eating so sort of food that they picked up from the market or the supermarket. In fact, almost every American has had to take time off due to a case of food poisoning. It is imperative that guidelines be reviewed and new guidelines implemented to ensure that these types of preventable illness not affect more Americans.

  • No, these industries do enough to prevent foodborne illnesses.

    No, I do not believe that the restaurant, grocery and farming industries need to do any more to help prevent foodborne illnesses. I say this because the industry as a whole is so heavily regulated with the health department checks and inspections by their own company. So many of these companies have very strict food safety guidelines to help prevent such cases from happening.

  • They do their best.

    No, I do not think that more could be done by companies to prevent foodborne illnesses in the restaurant, grocery and farming industries, because for the most part, these industries are very, very cautious. The companies who sell or serve tainted food will have a terrible public relations nightmare on their hands, so they already try very hard.

  • Foodbourne illness is part of life

    Foodborne illnesses happen. Most of our food is very safe, but occasionally something bad happens. We are doing enough to prevent them. Any more prevention would be overly expensive with relatively little return. We just have to accept that illness is a part of life and occasionally we will eat something that makes us sick.
