So food-truck employees will now have to cover the floor of their trucks with boxes of gloves, the way armored crew in the Vietnam War used to do with boxes of bullets. And if a regulator decides that’s still not enough gloves for the volume of business he figures they’ll do, well, so sorry but there goes your food truck.

Don’t give those idiots any ideas!

I’ve also heard by email from a reader in Vermont who says there is a similar rule in that state although it is “often ignored.” I hope the reporting gets into the question of whether the hand-contact rules in other states are in some respects less extreme than California’s, are often ignored, or some combination of the two.

Been this way for as long as I can remember, doesn’t seem to be a problem here. Not sure why it would be a problem there.

This will likely start a new round of CA-ADA litigation by people claiming that they are unsure if they are allergic to latex and have never eaten at a particular restaurant, but, because they might be, the restaurant should pay them because it follows CA law and requires food-handlers to wear gloves, that might be made of latex.

Think of the children using their ungloved (eek!) hands to eat potato chips and carrot sticks. Think of the uncovered flesh when babies breast feed. Terrible, terrible. Thank goodness the California legislature can extend the present law to cover practices in the home.

By the way, enough time has passed since passing Proposition 65 that it should be possible to determine with statistical rigor whether the requirements in the law have resulted in a safer California. We know the law was good for the makers of signs.
