Rarely is there "breaking news" in the food industry, new products launch, cookbooks come out, shows get cancelled, restaurants open and then close, but I just saw something that is rather breaking news and in the food industry as well. Turns out that an employee of Wolfgang Puck Catering was just diagnosed with acute hepatitis A.
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.
Luckily the Governor's Ball was not part of this "recall," however many other high profile events were, including the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue party (February 14). So you hear that Beyoncé? You better get thee to a hospital, now!
At the time of writing, Puck's PR firm stated that the list of events would not be released to the public. This seems odd, being that many people might not have realized his company catered these events... What do you guys think about that?
