Should we change our food handling laws for chef to touch and feel food?


The Gloves Come Off! California's Controversial Glove Law Has Been Repealed.
Jun 30, 2014
Unpopular measure went into effect this year

By George Embiricos

Cali chefs will no longer be required to wear latex gloves while cooking.

In a rather quick about-face, the California Senate has unanimously voted to repeal the controversial law that required chefs to wear latex gloves at all times while cooking. The measure – which went into effect on January 1 – offered several purported benefits, including the supposed protection of all food considered “exposed” or “ready to eat,” and the reduction of instances of foodborne illnesses. But California chefs were quick to fight back shortly after the law was passed. They mentioned the increase of restaurant expenses and feeling disconnected from their food. Other chefs pointed out the environmental hypocrisy in the law.

Moreover, food handlers debated the actual benefits of the measure, mentioning the possibility of cross-contamination, the effectiveness of proper hand washing and a general sense of confusion with the law. Many felt that their professions were being compromised; that the unwelcome rule was hindering their abilities to perform duties adequately.
