Could Beyonce Get Hepatitis from Wolfgang Puck?

2/27/2007 10:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

An urgent warning has been issued by the Health Department, warning the star-studded crowd who attended the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue party on Valentine's Day that they may have been exposed to acute hepatitis A. The list of possibly exposed guests: Beyonce Knowles, Leonardo DiCaprio's girlfriend Bar Rafaeli, and dozens of ridiculously hot bikini models.

The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health confirmed that an employee of Wolfgang Puck Catering was recently diagnosed with the disease, and has strongly urged anyone who attended the SI party, or any of the 13 other events catered by Puck between Feb. 1 - 20, to get an immune globulin shot by tomorrow to prevent illness.

When contacted, a rep from Puck's catering company would not tell TMZ which other events Puck catered, nor would they reveal how many other people may have been exposed to the illness. They did say, however, that no one who attended Sunday's Governor's Ball at the Academy Awards is at risk.

A rep for Beyonce told TMZ that they "were looking into it."

Anyone who eats out at any restuarant is at risk, nobody is tested, ever, becouse of privacy laws and you never know untill it is to late. Just think of all the people cooking and cleaning back in that kitchen who have hep, aids, flu, and who knows what else. They are never tested our screened for any type of sickness or desease. EAT AT HOME OR PACK A LUNCH BABY>

I'm trying hard NOT TO DISCRIMINATE HERE but people with hepatitis and other contagious diseases should not be working in this type of industry.

There WERE other people at the parties where this dude catered so why Beyonce I'm So Wonderful Knowles?

This is exactly the reason why anyone preparing food needs to wear vinyl gloves. It makes me sick thinking about all those TV chefs who prepare food for other people and don't ever bother wearing gloves.

I'll make my own stuff from now on.

Amazing    

#39 BECAUSE you don't want to discriminate, we are at risk for just about anything. You HAVE to discriminate every day of your life or you will die. And there are all these stupid laws to protect gays that do not allow any kind of testing or asking or revealing who's got what. People with AIDS can work in DC restaurants because you can't "discriminate." We are fools.
