Practices and perceptions of food safety among seniors who prepare meals at home.

This study was to determine whether a need exists for education for those over 60 years old, and what the content should be and how the effect should be designed. Focus groups were conducted and the participants then prepared meals. The groups said they will always use appropriate practices if told that inappropriate practices are linked to a real threat to their health from illness and/or death. They want information from educators and other credible sources. Journal of Nutrition Education 2001;33:148-154.
