3. In the past 12 months, how often did you eat vegetables that you or
someone else canned at home, such as asparagus, corn, or tomato sauces?

In the past 12 months, how often did you eat hamburgers that were still pink or red on the inside, both at home and away from home?

9. Have you seen this information?
Do you remember reading anything in the new labeling about safe handling of raw meat and poultry?
