TMZ reports that NYC hotspot Socialista where Ashton Kutcher held his birthday party was cited by the NYC Health Department that one of it's bartenders serving that night had Hepatitis A.
Ashton had an A-list Hollywood crowd celebrating his birthday including Madonna, Salma Hayek,Gwyneth Paltrow and Bruce Willis. Other guests included Salma Hayek and her husband, Lucy Liu, Lake Bell, Molly Sims, Amy Smart, Ivanka Trump, Parker Posey, Ali Larter, stylist Rachel Zoe, and designer Roberto Cavalli.
They are urged to get a hepatitis shot. The Kutcher bash was held on two weeks ago on February 7th. The infected bartender also served up drinks on Feb. 8 and 11.
According to the Daily News GateCrasher account of the party, Bruce Willis may need to be first in the celebrity line for his shot. Bruce Willis, faced with the 30th birthday of his ex-wife's husband, seemed to strike the perfect note of rueful bonhomie at Socialista."He reached into the birthday cake and just dug out two pieces with his hands," laughs a guest at the joint birthday of Ashton Kutcher and his twin brother, Michael."Before the cake was cut, before the candles were even blown out. Later he gave Ashton a big, long hug." (We understand he wiped his hands first.) source Check out a pic of Ashton's 30th birthday cake below.

celebrities - might need the vaccine as a precaution against the
liver-damaging disease, officials said. source
