According to a new poll released by CBS News, only one in three Americans are very confident that the food they buy is safe.
CBS News reports that 32 percent say they are “very confident” about the safety of the food they buy, while 52 percent are “somewhat confident.” The remaining 16 percent say they are not too confident or not at all confident in the safety of their food.
Only 7 percent of those surveyed gave the United States a grade of “A” when it comes to keeping the food supply safe.
This poll was taken as part of CBS News' "Where America Stands" series, an in-depth look at where the country stands today on key topics and an outlook for the future decade.
