OBJECTIVE Approximately 48 million Americans are affected by foodborne illness each year. Evidence suggests that the application of health psychology theory to food safety interventions can increase behaviors that reduce the incidence of illness such as adequately keeping hands, surfaces and equipment clean. This aim of this pilot study was to be the first to explore the effectiveness of a food safety intervention based on the Theory of Planned Behavior (TPB). METHODS Young adult participants… Expand
Predicting adolescents’ safe food handling using an extended theory of planned behavior
Abstract The aim of this study was to investigate whether the Theory of Planned Behavior (TPB) with the addition of risk perception could predict safe food handling in a sample of adolescents fromExpand
How Effective are Behavior Change Interventions Based on the Theory of Planned Behavior?: A Three-Level Meta-Analysis
Abstract. The theory of planned behavior (TPB) is a prominent framework for predicting and explaining behavior in a variety of domains. The theory is also increasingly being used as a framework forExpand
Explaining Consumer Safe Food Handling Through Behavior-Change Theories: A Systematic Review.
TLDR
The results suggest that multiple theories of behavior change can help to explain consumer safe food handling behaviors and could be adopted to guide the development of future behavior-change interventions. Expand
Observation of High School Students' Food Handling Behaviors: Do They Improve following a Food Safety Education Intervention?
TLDR
Despite the significant increase in correct behaviors, students continued to use risky practices postintervention, suggesting that the risk of foodborne disease remained. Expand
The impact of a theory-based web-intervention on the intention to use prescription drugs for non-medical purposes among college students: a randomized controlled trial
TLDR
The intervention was successful in changing attitudes toward NMUPD and targeting the intervention toward college students regardless of previous experiences ofNMUPD might have led to insufficiency of the intervention to influence intentions. Expand
Control beliefs and engagement in hygienic and safety behaviours: the case of foodborne illness
TLDR
Control and fatalistic beliefs are explored as potential factors for explaining engagement in preventive actions and the perceived effectiveness of the prescribed measures seems to be the best predictor ofagement in preventive behaviours, followed by perceived self-efficacy. Expand

Uninvited Guests at the Table – A Consumer Intervention for Safe Poultry Preparation
TLDR
The results offer support for the efficacy of providing knowledge to correct people's misconceptions and increase their awareness of food safety issues and provide pointers for future risk communication related to the topic of safe domestic food handling. Expand
Examining the predictive utility of an extended theory of planned behaviour model in the context of specific individual safe food-handling
TLDR
It appeared that moral norm was an important predictor of intention to engage in each of the four safe food-handling behaviours and moderated the relationship between intention and behaviour for the behaviour of avoiding unsafe food. Expand

Randomized controlled trial of a brief research-based intervention promoting fruit and vegetable consumption.
TLDR
This study concluded that the previously reported power of implementation intentions to prompt enactment of intentions is supported, and that a brief research-based leaflet-like intervention could result in immediate enhancement of intentions and anticipated regret, and promote greater fruit and vegetable consumption.

Food safety perceptions and behaviors of Kentucky consumers.
TLDR
In general, Kentucky consumers who perceived higher risks exhibited safer food handling behaviors, and strategies to increase the understanding of real and perceived food safety risks in the home combined with strategies that target specific demographic groups may be the most effective approach to improve food handling practices.

Efficacy of an extended theory of planned behaviour model for predicting caterers' hand hygiene practices
TLDR
It is suggested that hand hygiene practices cannot be improved solely through the provision of information to individuals, and effective interventions may need to focus on changing the organisational food safety culture. Expand
