Do you know what country your food comes from?

According to this Zogby poll 85% want to know:

Survey shows 90% believe knowing the country of origin of the foods they buy will allow consumers to make safer food choices .

As food recalls – from both imported foods from overseas and foods produced here in the U.S. – continue to make headlines, Americans may be paying more attention to where their food comes from. Nearly three in four (74%) say it’s important to them to know the country of origin for the all types of products they buy, but even more – 85% – say knowing where their food comes from is important. But for the vast majority of Americans it’s about more than just wanting to know – 94% believe consumers have a right to know the country of origin of the foods they purchase, a new Zogby Interactive poll

With the resent recalls of food and toys from China, this is understandable.
