On a late night run, I went to Carl's Jr. with my trusty coupon to grab a desperate snack. While there, I noticed that they did not have any gloves on while handling my food. Is that acceptable? I pose this question to all my readers. How do you know their hands are clean? They could be the person taking your order and handling your cash, then they run straight off to preparing your food? Do you know how dirty money can be? @_@
For me, I think if you are preparing food in plain sight of the customer you should really take care in appearing to be cleanly so that they won't have any complaints. This has happened to me once before even with Cheesecake Factory up in the Bay Area. After watching how they handled food right at the front made me vow NEVER to return. No gloves and one dirty dish rag that they all share did not comfort me into returning. If they do that right in front of you, I don't even want to fathom about what happens behind the scenes. *puke*
So tonight I saw the staff at Carl's Jr. using just their hands. I am not sure if I should be disgusted or just brush it off as what happens at fast food places. Any opinion? I do know that the people at Subway always use a glove, which should be the way food is prepared. Have you ever noticed that Sushi Chefs never use gloves? Somehow I can understand as long as they keep their hands clean and I see them wash their hands. So when is it acceptable for people who prepare our food not to use gloves? Interesting thought... do tell!
