Sticky Decisions: Peanut Butter in a Time of Salmonella PDF Version [PDF - 245 KB - 5 pages]
G. Kaptan and B. Fischhoff
    View Abstract

We present a consumer-focused perspective on creating communications regarding potentially contaminated foods. It is illustrated with decisions that might have faced US consumers during the 2009 recalls of peanut and pistachio products. The example shows how knowledge about test results and regulatory processes might be made more useful to consumers.
