Should pet dogs be allowed in eating areas?
Submissions on dogs being allowed in outdoor eating areas were recently called for by the Food Standards Australia New Zealand (FSANZ).
Steve McCutchenson, FSANZ Chief Executive Officer, has said that currently the Food Standards Code does not allow animals in areas where food is handled, with the exception of guide dogs. However he also stated that regulations vary from state to state regarding this issue.
The proposal is aiming to provide a nationally consistant approach, while still allowing businesses to have the final say for their business.
