The high number of food scares in the UK over the last few years has been blamed for the findings of a Food Standards Agency (FSA) report, which found that 78% of consumers were concerned about food hygiene, and 52% were not confident about the food safety measures currently in place. The revelations, which are sure to now prompt an investigation into industry standards, have come after a UK-wide survey of consumer attitudes. Chairman of the FSA, Sir John Krebs, admits that the number of consumers confident in food safety measures "is an unacceptably low figure."
