According to the report, the foodservice establishments majorly focus on the safety of the food served to the customers. The contamination of the food is one of the major challenges to these establishments and they follow strict guidelines during the food preparation and food serving procedures. The operators working in commercial kitchens must keep their hands and apparel sanitized to reduce the cross contamination into the food and also the operators need to change the gloves while starting a new task. Moreover, if the operators are continuously handling the ready to eat food, the gloves must be changed after every 3-4 hours.
Further, the report states that the regulations imposed by different governing bodies to restrict the use of certain types of gloves in foodservice establishments are posing a challenge for the manufacturers. For instance, in June 2016, the Environment Health Section in Connecticut, US has passed a circular to prohibit the use of the natural rubber disposable latex gloves in foodservice establishments. The regulation to prohibit the use of latex gloves is majorly due to, the high probability of allergy that can be caused by using the latex gloves. The latex gloves are composed of natural rubber and it can cause allergic reactions on the skin of the users. In addition to this, these gloves also contain latex protein, which can be transferred from the gloves to the food items. The transfer of latex protein can contaminate the food during food preparation and food serving.
