Recently, a case of food poisoning was traced to a particular restaurant chain. The source was identified and corrective actions were taken to make sure that the food poisoning would not reoccur. Despite the response from the restaurant chain, many consumers refused to visit the restaurant for some time after the event. A survey was conducted three months after the food poisoning occured with a sample of 319 patrons contacted. Of the 319 contacted, 29 indicated that they would not go back to the restaurant because of the potential for food poisoning. What sample size would be needed in order to be 99% confident that the sample proportion is within .02 of the true proportion who refused to go back to the restaurant?
