It is the nightmare of everyone. You go out. You are having the time of your life at one of the most important functions of the year. Then someone barfs on you and ruins the mood. Worse, an advisory has come out that one of the caterers in Chef Puck’s team, who catered the party you went to, has been diagnosed with acute Hepatitis A. Health officials say though that Chef Puck’s team has been very cooperative and done their best to keep it from contaminating the food and their patrons.
There were hundreds of guests at the Oscars party, any number of whom may have gotten the disease. There are three other parties as well that may be affected since Chef Puck had helped prepare food for three other events that day, including the party for Sports Illustrated.
The instructions are simple. Anyone who was at a party that Chef Puck catered for needs to look back and recall if they ate any raw or uncooked food. If they were barfed on, they are also at risk. If either of these two things has happened to them then they need to go to their personal physician and have an immune globule shot.
