Hairnets

Isn't there some law that says that people who work in the food industry need to wear hairnets? I only ask this because in the past weekI have now found hair twice in my food, frm two of our local stores. I am thoughouly disgusted, and may never eat out again - OK thats pushing it a bit - but I can't see myself eating anything from a restaraunt or bakery without checking for hairs, an affliction I didnt suffer from until last week.

I'm almost positive that the law requires food workers to wear hair-nets at all times when dealing with food. You could sue, or your should most definitely complain, or threaten to contact the sanitation dept or Better Business Bureau and have them fined. But, you can definitely be proacvtive about it.

As someone who is certified in such matters...yes, they are supposed to be wearing a hairnet. You can call the health department and report them. This is why I refuse to eat at most of the local eateries here in town (and most out of town). I am disgusted as well! EEWWW!!!

I'm not calling the health Dept. I spoke with one of the stores and let them know about the extra flavoring, and the other place, I don't even know which store it came from, and I'm to lazy to make a phone call to find out about the second hair.

So actually, in Michigan, you do not have to wear a hairnet but it is recommended that you where a hat or something on your head. I should tell you though, I have found hair more often in people's home cooking then I ever have in restaurants. I have been through countless health inspections and never wear a hat and I have never been fined or even told anything about it. The only places you have to wear a hairnet is somewhere where dietary restrictions come in to play, such as a school or nursing home. Those lunchline type places as well as markets for sure require it, but restaurants do not. All in all, it is still pretty disgusting, hope it didn't come from us.

Are you sure that it's not yours? You are getting up there in age. Maybe you should wear a hairnet when you eat:)

Cheers,
