I was walking by a Chinese/Cantonese BBQ restaurant. You know. The ones you can the roasted meat hanging up near the window and the chefs chopping them up as you order. It just occurred to me that they usually touch the cooked food with their bare hands. Then of course I realize many chefs do that as well. Sushi chefs also often touch the food with their bare hands.
Does this brother you? Would you be happier if they wear gloves?

For example, in 2014, California first banned chefs from directly touch the ready-to-eat food, and then the same law was shortly repealed.
California lawmakers have pulled an about-face on a controversial change to the state’s health code that bans restaurant workers from touching food with their bare hands and requires chefs and bartenders to wear gloves. The Senate voted 32 to 0 Thursday to repeal the law that went into effect Jan. 1. The measure was previously approved by the Assembly.
Let me know what you think. Thanks.
