PopSugarFood informed us via Twitter that California has banned workers from handling food with bare hands. Gloves will be a necessity and no longer an option.
While we at LiveLoveManja agree that aspects of this ban are downright brilliant, we are also worried about cross processing and contaminates between the top eight food allergens (will gloves be switched out for each dish?), glove waste, and latex allergies. Will latex handling be disclosed for customers and consumers with severe anaphylactic reactions to latex? These are the issues in our minds that come up with the new handling policy and we cannot help but wonder if they have been addressed.
