From Charleston Orwig:

In a national survey of 500 consumers from across the country, food and ag marketing agency Charleston|Orwig found that Americans believe the safest food can be found in one place—at home. More than 77% of consumers say that cooking a meal in their own kitchens is the best way to ensure it is safe to eat.

The second safest place to eat, according to American consumers, is at a restaurant, with more than 59% of consumers considering this to be a reliable option. The lowest on the list were food trucks or public vendors, with just 29% of respondents considering these safe and almost 42% considering this option potentially unsafe.
