Assembly bill 1252 added section 113961 to the California Retail Food Code (CalCode), which prohibits bare hand contact with ready-to-eat food, effective on January 1, 2014. No Bare Hand Contact is the practice of preventing direct contact with bare hands while handling ready-to-eat foods. Avoiding bare hand contact with foods that do not require further cooking provides an added protection against contamination with microbial or viral pathogens from the hands of food service employees.
