We recently drew attention to the UKAS customer satisfaction survey. What a fantastic organization!…think those who bothered to return the questionnaires. Do their own customers rate them so highly? Did they rate them lower before they were accredited?
Doug Powell shares a low opinion of opinion polls:
“FSA’s idea of risk communication is to commission a meaningless survey – people lie, especially about food and drink – which found that despite 71% of people stating that they are concerned about food poisoning, over a third (36%) of Brits would eat a burger that isn’t fully cooked through. More than one in 10 said that they actually prefer burgers cooked this way. When cooking them at home 81% of those admit to undercooking them. So we at the FSA are encouraging all those who are getting their barbecues out this weekend to ensure they cook their burgers all the way through – until steaming hot throughout, there’s no pink meat in the middle and the juices run clear.
