Health officials say Huber's Orchard and Winery tested negative for E. coli

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Representatives from several area health departments say inspections of samples collected from Huber Orchard and Winery have tested negative for E. coli.

The Board of Animal Health, the Indiana State Department of Health, and the Clark County Health Department conducted the inspections in what were called "high touch" areas, as well as in manure and feed dispensers. 

The State Health Dept. is still keeping an eye out for more cases.

A mother told WDRB earlier this month that her 2-year-old daughter went to Kosair Children's Hospital after her kidneys failed after contracting E.coli.  She said she believed her daughter got it from going to Huber's petting zoo and claimed there were two other sick children at the hospital dealing with the same thing who also pet the animals there.

Huber's employees have told WDRB they constantly sanitize all areas of the Farm Park, picnic benches, and children's play areas.

Hubers moved the animals to an area where the public could not come into contact with them as a precaution.

This afternoon Huber officials did not comment on the developments.
