Food Handlers Gloves
GlovesMD food handler’s gloves comply with FDA regulations for food contact. Our gloves for food services are ideal for cafeterias, catering, cleaning, food prep and more. GlovesMD food handler’s gloves prevent viruses and bacteria present in the body from contaminating ready-to-eat foods. Our selection of gloves includes nitrile, vinyl and PVC food handler’s gloves. All of our gloves for food services are safe for those with latex allergies.
Food services employees must avoid bare hand contact with ready-to-eat foods. Wearing disposable gloves for food services is one of several acceptable ways to comply with this law. Other acceptable methods include using spatulas, tongs, forks or deli tissue. Employees must change gloves for food services if the gloves get soiled or damaged, and they must wash their hands before wearing new food handler’s gloves. Contamination can occur after using the bathroom, smoking, coughing, sneezing and in between preparing raw and cooked foods. It’s a good idea to change food handler’s gloves after handling money, even though it’s not required by law, and food outbreak investigations have not identified this as a cause of illness. Employees must use food handler’s gloves for only one task at a time, such as working with ready-to-eat food or handling raw meat.
