Why do food service workers sometimes handle food with bare hands instead of wearing gloves?

Answer: 

It is best to handle foods that require no further cooking with suitable utensils or gloves rather than bare hands. However, there is no current state or local laws that requires this. The food code states that food handlers "shall avoid contact with their bare hands." It allows contact of these foods if the employee follows the proper hand washing procedures outlined in the food code.
