People with hairy hands should wear gloves no matter what…or handscape. Shudder.
How about hairy arms? How do you eat a hand tossed pizza and feel comfortable about it?
I don’t understand what people’s big problem is with hair. Or skin cells for that matter. Get over it.
Clean hands with clean finger nails can touch my food, as I am sure they have for 35 years of my life. I am still here, no major problems to report.
I understand the appearance factor that gloves can have to the typical customer, as Hot Dog Empire pointed out. I just don’t think gloves are comfortable or practical. I do agree that it is not necessarily a glove problem but an employee and manager/owner problem if someone is not using gloves properly.
I suppose statistically speaking, HD probably are operating on the idea that when gloves are used properly, there is much less chance of food borne illness transmission. This doesn’t take into account the user gloved fingertips melting to a hot griddle, uncomfortably sweaty hands, costs to owner, costs to environment, etc, etc. But they are probably the important facts of the statistics they are considering.
