Officials: 3 E. coli cases in linked to orchard



LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Louisville health officials say three cases of E. coli in the Louisville area have been linked and testing traced the bacteria to an Indiana farm.

WAVE-TV and WLKY-TV in Louisville reported that the Metro Department of Health and Wellness used genetic fingerprinting to trace the strains of bacteria infecting two Louisville residents and one Indiana resident.

Metro Health spokesman Dave Langdon says the three people who contracted E. coli visited Huber's Orchard and Winery between September 20 to September 28. He would not confirm which part of the orchard and winery were visited by those who were infected with E. coli.

The Indiana State Department of Health and the Indiana Board of Animal Health have taken over the investigation.

Langdon said Huber's Orchard owners are cooperating.
