In brief: Very

Food saftey is a primary concern for governments and agencies.
The public's safety is at hand. Many persons die in the US each year due to food borne illnesses. Buy foods from reputable sources, always check the integrity of containers, wash, wash and re-wash raw fruits and vegetables and use excellent preparation techniques. Be careful with storage of food, preparation of foods and eggs.
