Visit to Louisburg Cider Mill sickens some

Seven cases of E coli infections have been confirmed by people attending the Louisburg Mill Ciderfest in late September and early October. 

The Kansas Department of Health and Environment is saying they have identified the laboratory confirmed cases of Shiga toxin-producing E coli infections among people who were at the Louisburg Ciderfest September 24-25 and October 1-2.

Tests on cider making equipment last week came back negative for E coli; now investigators are looking to vendors who were on site for answers.

Anyone who experienced diarrhea within one to 10 days of attending the event to call 877-427-7317.
