[Sca-cooks] To say or not to say?

After reading your replies (thank you everyone) I looked up the and printed out the USDA's Cooking for Groups A Volunteers Guide to Food Safety booklet (PDF) to take to the next meeting to give to the Seneschal (in private).  I will bring up the shirtless men in the kitchen and give the booklet and suggest mandatory attendance for cooks to take a class prior to the feast (given by someone in the group)  as a way towards a solution.  Don't know how well it will be taken, but I'll at least feel better that I did try.
Thanks for all your help, your a great group

Oh! I had thought Aelina had made a typo. But yes, this makes a lot of sense.

I think I have a few overview files in the Florilegium on food and kitchen safety. But the allergy discussions have been so wide ranging and difficult to catalog that I haven't. Still, I'd like to see more individuals or groups arrange to take some of the kitchen safety courses.

Like the CPR and first aid classes/certifications done at various places in the SCA, the more trained folks the better.
