Have you discussed it with someone? Is it possible your state changed the laws?
I live in CA and our laws regarding food are really strict. I was actually really surprised. In another thread, I wrote that I just returned from a trip to Israel. Our breakfasts each morning included bread that we cut ourselves. The bread was on the buffet. This meant everyone cutting the bread was touching it. Of course here in CA, that would NEVER be allowed.
When we cut fruit, we must wash the knife after almost every slice to avoid cross cantamination. We also must wash our hands each time we touch a different food.
I'm not saying it's not frustrating, it is, but it's also the law.
