Did You Know?

Beginning Jan. 1, 2020, the use of latex gloves in your facility’s kitchen will be prohibited. 

Governor Newsom signed Senate Bill 677 into law, which bans the use of latex gloves in food facilities and retail food establishments and requires food employees to use non-latex utensils, including non-latex gloves.

Please let your dietary managers know that all food service employees should wear non-latex gloves beginning Jan 1. They should also check to make sure any utensils that are made with latex are removed from service.
