Oluwarotimi O. Odeh and Thomas Marsh

No 34698, 2004 Annual Meeting, February 14-18, 2004, Tulsa, Oklahoma from Southern Agricultural Economics Association

Abstract: This paper examines the impact of publicized food safety information on consumer price formation of meat (beef, pork, and poultry) and price flexibilities of the meat types. Preliminary analysis indicates that seasonal impact on meat price and some lagged food safety concerns are significant, while contemporaneous food safety concerns are not.
