now the purpose of those gloves is what again?



You know, I never thought about the cashiers handling my produce and the money. From now on I will make sure all my produce is in plastic bags. I often just get a couple of apples or whatever and don't put them in a bag.

Actually, if we all knew everything that went on in these places we would always eat at home!

the glove thing to me is pointless. you see people in fast food joints or where ever wearing gloves and for whatever reason they figure their hands are clean that it doesn't matter what they touch with the gloves. I watched a girl in a fast food place push back her hair with gloves on her hand and then turn away from the cash register to sneeze, guess what she covered her mouth/nose with the gloved hand and then tried to serve me food with the same gloves on. I was furious! I told her shall I make a list of all things you have touched with those gloves including my food! All I had running thru my head was how many germs I would have been taking on hadn't I seen that. Of course she stood there looking at me like I had 3 heads. LOL

I have to wear gloves, all that hand washing really dries out my hands. However I wash my gloved hands the same I would wash my bare hands.

About ten years ago when I worked at a fish plant my hands got so dry and cracked they were bleeding. So painful. I never want that to happen again.

So long and thanks for all the fish!

In Dec and Jan, I had about 4 caterings that each lasted 3-4 days. I fed 100 college guys on-site 3 meals a day. It was an all day thing (as soon as we cleaned up after breakfast, we had to start dinner, etc). I've never washed my hands so much in my life as I did during those 3 day stints. Plus it was winter. My hands were really cracked.

I keep pure aloe gel around. Plenty of coats of that on my hands and the cracked, dry, almost bleeding skins was nice and normal in just 2 days.

It is better than most lotions I have ever used. It's a real healing tool.

Hmm, wondering if the Walmart ladies where wearing the gloves to protect themselves from germs - not the customers?

My sister's MIL used to work at a bank. She washed her hands all the time since she handled so much cash. One time she forgot to wash her hands and scratched her nose...........she ended up getting a staph infection!

OH! Here is something I DO NOT understand at all. Why is it not a law for customers at a buffet to have to wash their hands? How many times have you been in the buffet line and wondered how clean the customers' hands are? You have to touch the same tongs they just used. Ewwwwww!

vanillabean, my daughter is a germ-o-phobe and refuses to eat at a buffet .... which is a little ironic because we are a buffet catering company! icon_lol.gificon_lol.gif

Good point about the walmart gloves ... protecting them from the germs. I hadn't thought of that!

I work at a bakery/Italian That also has hot foods,deli and full bakery. I work as a clerk in the front of the store, handling bread, using bread slicer, back and forth to the deli, and hot foods pizza etc. then using cash register,we are required to wear hairnets, and gloves, It's a very fast paced place and if I wear the plain plastic gloves. they are loose, when we tie the bread sometimes the fingers of gloves get caught while were fastening the bread ties, so I try using the tighter poly gloves, which work well but you can't take them off and on for ever customer, so I keep them on and use our tissues with the gloves on, most of the bakery girls don't wear the gloves they just use tissues, I know this is a very long winded....sorry any body have any suggestions !!

Even though this thread is SIX years old it is always a good thing to think about and practice safe food hygiene.

Iowa must be the same as Indiana - gloved hands for all contact with ready to eat food (salad, sliced bread, buns, cookies).  You can touch the raw cookie dough before baking, but once baked, must use gloves or spatula/tissue.  We go through a lot of gloves.  Our restaurant employees change them very frequently, though, between tasks, which is good.

No gloves or hairnet required here in MA.  I scrub my hands like a surgeon when I bake, but when I'm sculpting something I don't wear gloves.  I never see gloves on any of the tutorials on Cake Central, in fact, I've seen long, acrylic nails.  Nail polish and long nails are a no-no for me.  The bacteria under fingernails is something to consider, even with the most sanitary of bakers.  Starbucks will not allow employees to have long nails or nail polish.  I also will not wear my wedding and engagement rings while I work, which means I almost always walk out of the house a single lady...icon_biggrin.gif

I understand they might not have to have nets however, don't you think for the sake of hair in the food anyone would want them? I wear one since I don't want to risk losing a customer to that kind of error. Beside the fact that on that show they are always touching their beards (the guys) or faces then the fondant without gloves. We are constantly losing skins cells even in our hands so that bacteria is getting into the cake. Will it make you sick? Probably not however it just sounds gross. Would you rather buy a nice cake that has been touched so much or one where you know it is just as nice and they've used gloves?Besides, the cast of Ace of Cakes just appear rugged and unkempt. Even culinary chef/instructors teach to keep it clean.
