No Gloves Needed For Oregon Chefs
The gloves are off in the debate over requiring restaurant chefs to wear the latex hand gear while preparing your food. The Oregon Health Authority is now shelving the proposed mandate that would have taken affect on July 1st.
Local chefs against the mandate said they needed to feel the food with their bare hands rather than with gloves while cooking, as long as they applied the double-washing hand rule.
The protests from the food service industry caused the Health Authority to work on a new provision.
