California Chefs, Bartenders Now Forced To Wear Gloves



” Chefs and bartenders in California are aghast over a new law that prevents them from touching the food they will serve to customers. The new law, which took effect on January 1, is part of the California Retail Food Code.

” Every California lawmaker who voted for this should be asked to cook food this way at home,” says Walter Olson of Overlawyered and the Cato Institute, by email.

  So which California lawmakers voted for this law? All of them, it turns out.

  While the law has been wildly controversial since coming into force, it passed both the state senate and state assembly by unanimous votes.”
