dc.description.abstractAlthough vast consumer food safety knowledge and self - reported data exist , there is a lack of attitudinal data detailing perceptions of risk , control and responsibility. Such data relating to vulnerable groups, including older adults, are particularly lacking. P erception determination is essential i n consumer food safety research to facilitate a comprehensive in sight to cognitive factors that may impact behavior ; previous research indicate a relationship between food safety perceptions and behavior . Perceptual data can inform the development of targeted food safety educational interventions. This study aims to ascertain older adult consumers’ cognitive perceptions regarding food safety. Older adults (≥60 years) ( n =100) participated in a computer assisted personal interview to determine perceived risk , control and responsibili ty of food safety . A lthough aware of the potential severity of foodbor ne illness, the association of foodborne illness with domestic food preparation may be underestimated. Significant differences were determined between perceived ‘ personal ’ risk, control and responsibility, compared with ‘others’ ( p <0.001) . Older adults per ceived ‘ themselves ’ to have lower levels of risk than ‘ others ’ suggesting perceptions of optimistic bias and personal invulnerability. Perceived greater levels of ‘personal’ control and responsibility, compared to ‘ others ’ , suggest perceptions associated w ith illusion of control. Correlations were determined between personal perceptions of risk, control and responsibility ( p < 0.05) , w hereby low levels of risk correlated with high levels of control. Those aged ≥ 80 years, perceived higher level s of risk, and lowe r level s of control and responsibility. Cumulatively, older adult consumers demonstrate perception s of invulnerability, optimistic bias and illusion of control regarding food safety. Such perceptions may undermine educational attempts. Food safety mess ages for this audience need to be tailored to overcome such perceptions.en_US
