"While considerable knowledge about public risk perceptions, likely response, and effective communications about terrorism and other hazards in general now exist, little is known about how people may react to potential deliberate attacks on the food supply. On one hand it may be reasonable to extrapolate from responses to unintentional contamination. However, given the novelty of these risks and related uncertainty (in particular regarding speed of response and scale of threat) such parallels may be tenuous. This study examines Americans perceptions of, and likely reactions to, acts of bioterrorism (i.e., attacks targeting the food supply).
