There is much worse than having nice scrubbed, gloveless hands on your food. And there is lots that can happen while wearing gloves... I once saw one of those hidden camera shows where a guy narrates, while they show clips of all sorts of nastiness. The guy on camera is preparing salads, and had a pile of washed lettuce on a cart. A waitress comes in and they flirt and he paws at her, and she goes out again, and he prepares salads. This happens several times, and then there comes a time when pawing and kissing leads to more, and she pulls her britches down, SITS ON THE LETTUCE CART BARE BUTT, and they proceed to do the unthinkable. And then he zips up and continues to make salads, USING THE BRUISED LETTUCE THE HO WAS SITTING ON, but at least he was wearing gloves the whole time, right?

I agree that that is freaking crazy. But just because I like gloves doesn't mean that I don't like proper glove usage. Using a glove for more than one task is not proper usage. Not washing your hands before and after wearing gloves is not proper glove usage. You treat your gloves like you woild your hands. If its a situation where you would have to wash your hands. Then take the gloves off and wash your hands.
I've seen plenty of improper glove use and lots of improper hand hygiene. this is not directed at anyone here. Just food service in general. Gloves or no gloves, if your hands aren't raw by the end of an 8 hr shift. Youre probably doing it wrong.

I try not to watch those, but everytime I get sucked in I spend the rest of the day convincing myself it's all an act and nobody is actually that disgusting...

 

As far as gloves go, I think everyone who wants to handle food in anyway should have to read these.

Who Scrumdiddly, thanks for that! These are my favorite parts! Make me want to run out to the nearest restaurant! 

 

A recent UK Food Standards Agency survey showed that one-third of caterers fail to wash hands after using the toilet.[8] Efficacy of a thorough hand washing sequence using antimicrobial soap, lathering well, rinsing and drying may be greater than 3-log reduction (99.9%). Combined with alcohol sanitizer treatment this can be raised even further. For example, long ago it was shown that Salmonella spp. can survive for several hours on fingertips, but that handwashing followed by hand drying with paper towels effectively reduced the risk of transmission to food.[9] If it were only that simple. There are important parts of the hand that are typically missed during the hand washing process. Thumbs, palms, spaces between fingers and fingertips, including the fingernail area, are areas where contamination is most likely to remain. The nail region presents special problems because more than 95% of hand flora resides in these areas.[10] Toilet paper poke-through results in fecal contamination of this part of the hand, commonly used hand hygiene protocols render this intervention largely ineffective, thereby additionally requiring fingernail brush use.[11-13] It is uncertain what role that the fingernail region plays in foodborne transmission of human pathogens and depending on glove strength at finger tips, whether glove use would increase or decrease the probability of transmission, when the nail region is heavily contaminated. It is known, for example, that artificial nails are linked to poor hand washing practices, more glove tears and to outbreaks.[14-15] In gloves that trap heat and moisture, the potential exists to liquefy nail contamination and release it when punctured.

I hate seeing food handlers working fondant with their rings on. So many crevices for nastiness to hide even when the hands are washed... especially if the ring has a stone.

yeah, I had to stop reading the article. too late for me to compute. must try again in the morning. basically what I got from it is, your ****ty hands will never be clean enough, but gloves won't help either.

the false nail thing really bothers me,i know they won't let food service workers have them. which I agree with, but then why do so many nurses have them?

Yep, pretty much!

 

My nails grow like crazy, but I like to keep them short. Regardless of the length, I scrub them thoroughly. I used to use a nail brush, but found a medium bristle tooth brush works so much better, since I can focus on each nail individually, rather than the huge brush that misses areas. And then I soak them in my freshly made bleach water (not the sanitizer for the sink, but my bucket I wipe  up spills with and soak my wash cloths in, it is bleachier) then  I love to blast them with my prerinse sprayer. (high pressure, low volume)  They feel amazing afterward, and are bright white. I wish I could get them swabbed and see how clean they really are.

I meant to say something about that. SICKENS ME! Especially the nurses in the NICU, who had claws, handling my babies... I was worried they would accidentally dig their skin off.

I used to work in McDonald's when I was a teen, it used to really annoy me that everyone assumed we did all the gross things people assume is done with McDonald's food because we actually took care about our jobs and the food we served.

I actually have a major problem eating food that's been prepared in someone's home, stemming from a very bad experience in a home with a dog when I was a little kid. I never eat at potlucks apart from whatever I brought, and I always offer to bring a dish when we're invited to someone's house. It's kind of a pain but I just can't get over it!

Agreed!  I have seen some gross dog related stuff.
