I just said I don't eat in restaurants, not for this reason though but now I'd be even more weary if this is standard practice.

I still don't see the issue. People aren't dieing on the way out the door of restaurants every day due to the odd hair in their food. Otherwise, what you dont know, cant hurt you.
However, that doesn't condone some of the incredible hygiene breaches happening in some restaurants due to rodent and insect infestations etc.

I work in a fast food place and the second we get a break in customers I have to clean down all of the surfaces and clean my hands, replace the cloths, mop the floors, clean my hands again etc. My manager went ballistic at a fellow crew member the other day cause he scratched his nose while working on the tills, she was nearly calling the head office.

Obviously it's impossible to get rid of all germs but we do try. The food you get in a fast food place will probably have as many or perhaps less germs than what you cook at home unless you have ocd or something.

I find that unlikely, at home you can peel or wash fruit, vegetables, grain, etc yourself as most people would do and then prepare them. nothing OCD about that.

Well if that keeps you up at night, think about a loaf of bread, a packet of crisps or a pre-packaged salad. How can you guarantee who or what has handled it? You can't. Unless you're producing the food from the cradle to the grave, you can't guarantee anything. That's life, move on.

I was refering really to the area in which it's perpared. Your chopping boards and counter tops and cutlery are probably not cleaned down as often as they are in fast food places (well good ones anyway). Germs are everywhere. I doubt you go to the bathroom and clean your hand every 30minutes whether they are dirty or not.

And also if I was preparing fruit or grains or whatever i would wash it and peel it. The same preparation goes on in restaurants as it does in the home. We're not a bunch of slobs firing out half cooked meat and unwashed veg without a care as many people seem to think.

Therefore it is easy to assume that there is the same amount of germs or maybe less are in the food you eat out in restaurants unless you have to clean the place as often as I have to, every 25minutes or so, which would be ocd behaviour in my unprofessional opinion.

I'd be more grossed out over saliva, but then again I couldn't be arsed.

In McDonalds they teach staff that clean hands are better than gloves. Staff have to wash their hands at least every 30min. People wearing gloves in Deli's often wear them for hours, by which time they've picked up as much grime and bacteria as unwashed hands would have in that time.

I know cleanliness is important, but people freak out about it way too much. So eat the odd blackberry straight off the bramble and let kids get as dirty as they want, its what being a kid is all about!

Surely if they used gloves, the dough would taste like latex?

I asked my friend and he said that's the same in all dominos?? He could have anything on his hands! Wiped his nose, etc.

Does anyone find this disgusting? And is this normal, like does it go on in apache, four star, etc also?


Im not really sure where to start, have you ever eatin in this thing called restuarunts ? well chefs handel food they dont wear rubber gloves....
If you go to forighn countrys they all make pizzas bare handed you have to same with any food. wear ing the rubber gloves are< dangerous, annoying....


No I dont find it dissgusting becaus eif hes following the H&S and hicap or how ever you pronounce it guide lines trhen there little chance of anyhting happening..

Oh bye the way you should get cheacked for OCD and make sure you also get your imune system cheacked cleerly you never ate wroms as a kid
