A strange law in Illinois states it’s illegal to sleep in a professional kitchen.

There are some weird rules out there. I saw this one and it really stood out. I don't understand the reasoning behind it.

According to thrillist.com,

"Plan your naps carefully in Illinois, lest you fall asleep in a cheese shop and break the law whilst not even being awake to remember it." 

Now, isn't that strange?

Here's what the real law says from ilga.gov,

"It shall be unlawful for any person to sleep, or to allow or permit any person to sleep in any work room of a bake shop, kitchen, dining room, confectionery, creamery, cheese factory, or any place where food is prepared for sale, served or sold, unless all foods therein handled are at all times in hermetically sealed packages." 

I guess no sleeping on the job for chefs.
