LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Lab results from environmental test samples taken from Huber's Orchard and Winery are negative for E. coli, according to the Indiana State Department of Health.
State personnel collected samples from "highly touched areas" and animals at Huber's Orchard and Winery Family Farm Park. Health department spokesperson Amanda Turney said all tests came back negative; however, Turney said the investigation is ongoing.
Dana Huber, the orchard and winery's spokesperson, said the business is awaiting official confirmation.
Previously, the Indiana State Department of Health confirmed a link between three E. coli cases and Huber's Orchard and Winery after pulsed-field gel electrophoresis (PFGE) tests, commonly known as genetic fingerprinting, indicated the E. coli cases of two Louisville children and one Indiana child are from similar strains of bacteria.
Turney said the three children who contracted E. coli visited Huber's Orchard and Winery between September 20 and September 28.
