Hot Tub Bacteria Responsible For Fever Outbreak At Playboy Mansion

Hugh Hefner hot tub fever

Most people that party at the Playboy Mansion are struck with hot tub fever, however, an unlucky few literally got a fever one of the mansion's hot tubs.

Back in February, 170 people reportedly fell ill with symptoms of Pontiac fever, a milder version of Legionnaire's disease, after attending a fundraiser at the Playboy Mansion.

While there was speculation that the outbreak originated at Hugh Hefner's estate, Los Angeles County health officials say the bacteria that causes the disease was, in fact, found in a hot tub at the Playboy Mansion.

The legionella bacteria found causes an acute respiratory infection with symptoms including fever and headache.

Let's hope Heff called in the pool boys CDC to take care of that bacteria, while those affected should rest assured they only caught a fever instead of something they couldn't throw back.
