FDA must conduct needed research to ensure that such programs have the highest likelihood of being effective. FDA expects that improving communications about the safety of regulated animal drugs, feed, food additives, and devices will involve many research methods, including individual indepth interviews, mallintercept interviews, focus groups, selfadministered surveys, gatekeeper reviews, and omnibus telephone surveys. The information collected will serve three major purposes. First, as formative research it will provide critical knowledge needed about target audiences to develop messages and campaigns about the use of FDAregulated products for use in animals. Knowledge of consumer and veterinary professional decision-making processes will provide the better understanding of target audiences that FDA needs to design effective communication strategies, messages, labels, and labeling. These communications will aim to improve public understanding of the risks and benefits of using regulated animal drugs, feed, food additives, and devices by providing users with a better context in which to place risk information more completely. Second, as initial testing, it will allow FDA to assess the potential effectiveness of messages and materials in reaching and successfully communicating with their intended audiences. Testing messages with a sample of the target audience will allow FDA to refine messages while still in the developmental stage. Respondents will be asked to give their reaction to the messages in either individual or group settings. Third, as evaluative research, it will allow FDA to ascertain the effectiveness of the messages and the distribution method of these messages in achieving the objectives of the message campaign. Evaluation of campaigns is a vital link in continuous improvement of communications at FDA. In the Federal Register of June 16, 2014 (79 FR 34312) FDA published a 60day notice requesting public comment on the proposed collection of information. One comment was submitted; however, it was not responsive to the four collection of information topics solicited and therefore is not discussed in this document. FDA estimates the burden of this collection of information based on recent prior experience with the various types of data collection methods described in this document: rmajette on DSK3VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES TABLE 1—ESTIMATED ANNUAL REPORTING BURDEN 1 Number of respondents 21 U.S.C. 393(d)(2)(D) Individual Indepth Interviews ...............................................

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Under section 903(b)(2) of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (21 U.S.C. 393(b)(2)), we are authorized to conduct research relating to foods and to conduct educational and public information programs relating to the safety of the nation’s food supply. The Food Safety Survey measures consumers’ knowledge, attitudes, and beliefs about food safety. Previous versions of the survey were collected in 1988, 1993, 1998, 2001, 2006, and 2010. Data from the previous Food Safety Surveys and from this proposed survey will be used to evaluate two Healthy People 2020 objectives: (1) Increase the proportion of consumers who follow key food safety practices (Objective FS– 5) and (2) reduce severe allergic reactions to food among adults with a food allergy diagnosis (Objective FS–4) (Ref. 1). Data from this survey will also be used to measure progress toward the United States Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety Inspection Service’s Fiscal Year 2011-Fiscal Year 2016 Strategic Plan goal of ensuring that, ‘‘Consumers, including vulnerable and underserved populations, adopt food safety best practices’’ (Ref. 2). Additionally, Food Safety Survey data are used to measure trends in consumer food safety habits including hand and cutting board washing, cooking practices, and use of food thermometers. Finally, data are used to evaluate PO 00000 Frm 00035 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 educational messages and to inform policymakers about consumer attitudes about technologies such as food irradiation and biotechnology. The proposed Food Safety Survey will contain many of the same questions and topics as previous Food Safety Surveys to facilitate measuring trends in food safety knowledge, attitudes, and behaviors over time. The proposed survey will also be updated to explore emerging consumer food safety topics and expand understanding of previously asked topics. For example, recent papers in both the United States (Ref. 3) and Europe (Refs. 4 and 5) have pointed to changing epidemiology of listeriosis where adults over 60 years old have the highest rates of the illness. One reason for the increase in listeriosis rates among those over 60 years old could be increasing host susceptibility due to widened use of immunocompromising medications. We plan to include questions on the proposed survey to document the proportion of those over 60 years old who self-report taking a defined list of major immunocompromising medications. In conjunction with our established questions about safe food handling and eating potentially risky foods, the additional questions will expand our understanding of listeriosis among those over 60. Other new topics planned to be covered on the survey include: Consumer understanding of mechanically tenderized beef, awareness of foodborne pathogens such as Toxoplasma gondii, and awareness of the risks associated with eating raw sprouts. The methods for the proposed Food Safety Survey will be largely the same as those used with the previous Food Safety Surveys. One major difference is that, unlike the data collection mode for previous Food Safety Surveys that used only land telephone lines, the proposed survey will include cell phones in addition to landlines.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In compliance with 44 U.S.C. 3507, FDA has 
submitted the following proposed collection of information to OMB for 
review and clearance.

Regulated Products Used in Animals (21 U.S.C. 393 (d)(2)(D))--OMB 
Control Number 0910-0689--Reinstatement

    FDA is authorized by section 1003(d)(2)(D) of the Federal Food, 
Drug, and Cosmetic Act (21 U.S.C. 393(d)(2)(D)) to conduct educational 
and public information programs relating to the safety of CVM-regulated 
products. FDA must conduct needed research to ensure that such programs 
have the highest likelihood of being effective. FDA expects that 
improving communications about the safety of regulated animal drugs, 
feed, food additives, and devices will involve many research methods, 
including individual indepth interviews, mall-intercept interviews, 
focus groups, self-administered surveys, gatekeeper reviews, and 
omnibus telephone surveys.
    The information collected will serve three major purposes. First, 
as formative research it will provide critical knowledge needed about 
target audiences to develop messages and campaigns about the use of 
FDA-regulated products for use in animals. Knowledge of consumer and 
veterinary professional decision-making processes will provide the 
better understanding of target audiences that FDA needs to design 
effective communication strategies, messages, labels, and labeling. 
These communications will aim to improve public understanding of the 
risks and benefits of using regulated animal drugs, feed, food

which to place risk information more completely.
    Second, as initial testing, it will allow FDA to assess the 
potential effectiveness of messages and materials in reaching and 
successfully communicating with their intended audiences. Testing 
messages with a sample of the target audience will allow FDA to refine 
messages while still in the developmental stage. Respondents will be

    Third, as evaluative research, it will allow FDA to ascertain the 
effectiveness of the messages and the distribution method of these

Evaluation of campaigns is a vital link in continuous improvement of

    In the Federal Register of June 16, 2014 (79 FR 34312) FDA 
published a 60-day notice requesting public comment on the proposed 
collection of information. One comment was submitted; however, it was 
not responsive to the four collection of information topics solicited 
and therefore is not discussed in this document.
    FDA estimates the burden of this collection of information based on 
recent prior experience with the various types of data collection
