California chefs, bartenders may win back right to touch your food with their bare hands

It looks like California chefs, bartenders and deli workers might be able to take off those hated rubber gloves.

Gov. Jerry Brown was presented Thursday with AB2130 -- a "do-over" bill would repeal a law requiring those handling food that goes directly to diners wear gloves and mandating that they change those gloves with every new plate or fruit garnish on a drink.

The law took effect in January, but following a backlash from the public and the foodservice industry, the state legislature voted to repeal the ban.

"We're grateful the assemblyman was willing to roll (the bill) back, hit pause and restart the process from the beginning," Angie Pappas, a spokeswoman for the California Restaurant Association told the San Francisco Chronicle.

Pappas says she’s confident that Brown will sign the bill.

If any state needs their food servers to have gloves on, it’s California

I agree. Especially with the diseases that are crossing over the border into CA.

“...mandating that they change those gloves with every new plate or fruit garnish on a drink.”

That part is ridiculous. They need to STOP with all this nonsense. We have some real problems in this country, stop worrying about sodas and maraschino cherries!

+1^1000

The Calif. food industry is infested with homos, and Hawaii is not much better.

Not sure about in the kitchens, but the servers are all too often homo. Either that or they have so many piercings it makes your skin crawl.

Just order an alcoholic beverage.

At least alcohol kills most bugs.

But order a virgin anything and I'm sorry, but can't help you.

Then again, what is "virgin" in California, except for olive oil?

The children have already been "touched" by their public school teachers.

The elite liberals heard from their sushi chefs and presto, the law’s repealed. Since the idiotic plastic bag ban only makes life more difficult for the poor and middle though, it stands!

I’ve worked in the food service industry. I hate gloves, they may make the customers feel good but that’s about it. I always get on people about proper hand washing.

Think about cooking at home, you handle raw chicken and feel the raw chicken juices on you hand. You wash you hands before moving on. With gloves, you don’t feel that and for many they keep on working, cross-contaminating everything as they go.

I have seen people empty trash cans, and come back wearing the same gloves as they used to empty the trash and continue to work. When I confronted them, they said they had gloves on so it was fine. But hey, the customer saw the person who made their salad wearing gloves, so it was sanitary, right?

It’s about using them right. I’ve seen kitchens where cooks scraped their spatulas off on the side of garbage cans and then kept right on a-cookin’.

I’m surprised they would allow such a waste of resources — all the landfill garbage from a million gloves, fake-global warming, so on.

I always wash my hands before cooking something, and I always wash after handling raw eggs. Easy peasy.
