SF's Michael Bauer investigates the new CA Food Handler Card law and determines that "...if you look closely at the bill, you’ll see why it’s critically flawed...Turns out only a narrow band of people who work with food actually will be required to take the test. If you work in a food truck, pop-up restaurant or school cafeteria, or you prepare food sold in a grocery store, you don’t have to have the card...If you’recovered by a collective bargaining agreement — i.e., a member of a union...[you] get a pass...grocery stores [are] exempted because they don’t prepare food...So while...900,000 workers will be trained, I’m more concerned about the hundreds of thousands who don’t have to get the card."
