New food safety law means California bartenders have to wear gloves, too
San Francisco Chronicle ^ | 01/15/2014 | Paolo Lucchesi

Last week, Scoop brought news of a new amendment to California food safety law that bans bare-handed food contact in restaurants. Its a regulation that has received the scorn not to mention eye-rolling 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.

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!

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.

And not just any gloves or tweezers- welding gloves and zircon-encrusted tweezers.

I was just going to post this.

San Francisco is banning plastic bags in grocery stores because of ending up in landfills, so what are they going to do with all those used latex gloves?

Do they still have to wash their latex-covered hands after they use the restroom?

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

I like that one a little better, although latex could be air tight already, just wanted to make sure there was no breathing room for correction in my comment. ;-)

I am not, as a rule, supportive of the litigious society that has developed these days. But if I ever caught wind of someone adding some local flavor to my food? I'd see them turned inside out for every red cent they're worth.

I have often seen food service workers dutifully wear their gloves to handle food, keep them on while using the till and handling money...both quite filthy.... then not change gloves and go back to food prep.

San Francisco is maybe 10 years away from requiring that pedestrians wear helmets.

I predict that by 2045, even a rural Californian stepping outside of their home without donning their CA Dept. of Public Safety-approved unisex Pedihelmet will be shouted at via the pole-mounted loudspeaker on the neighborhood remote safety camera to put their helmet on or be cited by ticket-dispensing aerial drone.

12-year olds will have facial tattoos, but they will also have fashionable Pedihelms funded in part by displaying electronic advertising for various IMAX 4D porno sites on the SuperWeb.

Those won't be tatoos, they'll be government-mandated QR codes, so that the pole-mounted remote safety cameras can scan you and pull up all of your NSA-supplied IRS records.

Nah, this is _California_. They should wear kinky elbow-length plastic gloves in some eye-scorching day-glo color.

*****************************
My trash pickup in Grapevine TX is done by Allied Waste/Republic Services. Their recycling center is in Fort Worth and developed a film recovery center for handling the plastic bags, so they are now included in our acceptable recycling trash.

Idiots in communities banning plastic bags need to venture into the 21st century.
