Does the use of a Food Code compliant alcohol hand sanitizer replace a handwash or a non-handwash?

Jim Mann's picture

Handwashing with soap and warm water is always the preferred choice but handwashing is often restricted by the food worker's access to running water. This is particularly true where Ready-To-Eat foods are served at drive-up windows, on street corners, at sporting events, in airport hallways and at outdoor seating venues. The use of these sanitizers can also enhance hand hygiene at server stations.
