Last week, Scoop brought news of a new amendment to California food safety law that bans bare-handed food contact in restaurants. Itís a regulation that has received the scorn ó not to mention eye-rolling ó of chefs and diners alike, even though the state has agreed for a soft enforcement period in the first half of the year.

What's ironic here is that in San Francisco proctologists do not have to wear latex gloves.

ive been in food service and maintain my Level 1 National certification - that said, this means nothing - theyd have better obligated the bars to regularly clean their soda pop lines & heads & ice makers

Shouldn’t California bureaucrats wear gloves too?

No kidding - a neglected ice maker can be real nasty. Our local dirty spoon brought me a glass of water with black specks all through the ice. When the waitress got lippy about it, I called the health department and they shut the place down for a few days. I still won’t eat there.

The white gloves and tie would make them look swanky

They should also sterilize all liquor bottle mouths with alcohol.

Not too mention, the patient can arrive at their appointment already in the nude.

If California majority voters don’t want to pay for the gloves, but don’t lift a finger to pressure lawmakers to repeal or amend the law to the voters’ liking, then voters can sleep in the bed that they’ve made for themselves with respect to being too lazy to exercise their voting power to resolve this situation.

So three fingers of scotch will be just a bit more.

Only if they're latex. And worn stretched over their head.

Yeah, that's the ticket! Get some medical alcohol and swab all the bottles and glassware with it! Either that or get some fresh moonshine!

We had a bartender at the local pub that scratched her ass, picked her nose and stirred your drink all with the same finger.

So, the Bartender wears gloves to put ice or a slice of lemon in a drink.....and then handles money. BRILLIANT!

Never piss off restaurant personnel unless you want saliva or other foreign bodily fluids in your cocktail or entree.

I guess latex gloves aren’t as bad as plastic bags?

Could have a backfire effect. Cheap bosses want to save on glove costs or some such.

So the gloves will have traces of drugs on them.

Nice, they can order a little jack and coke and coke.
