Preventing Contamination from Hands
The main reason for not touching ready-to-eat foods with bare hands is to prevent viruses and bacteria which are present in your body from contaminating the food. Viruses and bacteria are invisible to the naked eye, but may be present on your hands if you do not wash them thoroughly. Effective October 1, 2016, the City of Lincoln Food Code (LMC 8.20) prohibits bare hand contact with ready-to-eat foods and requires good hand washing by food service workers.
