Three Sick With E. Coli in KY and IN

The Louisville Metro Health Department has linked three cases of E. coli reported in Louisville and Indiana through genetic fingerprinting.

All three victims reportedly visited Huber’s Orchard and Winery in Borden, IN, between Sept. 20 and 28, but a statement released by the facility last week indicated that an inspection of their food by the Clark County Health Department found no connection.

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

Symptoms of E. coli infection typically include stomach cramps, diarrhea, vomiting and fever. Severe illnesses may develop hemolytic uremic syndrome, a potentially fatal kidney disease.
