Bartenders in CA May Be Required To Wear Gloves

by | Jan 17, 2014 | alcohol beverage law

California bartenders may be required to wear disposable gloves or use utensils to make drinks under a new food safety law.

The California Retail Food Code went into effect at the beginning of 2014 requires chefs and all other culinary workers to wear disposable gloves or use utensils such as tongs, when handling “ready-to-eat” foods.

The Code reads as follows:

“Except when washing fruits and vegetables, as specified in Section
113992 or as specified in subdivisions (e) and (f), food employees shall not
contact exposed, ready-to-eat food with their bare hands and shall use
suitable utensils such as deli tissue, spatulas, tongs, single-use gloves, or
dispensing equipment.”

The full Code can be read here: http://www.leginfo.ca.gov/pub/13-14/bill/asm/ab_1251-1300/ab_1252_bill_20131004_chaptered.pdf
