TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -

The president and general manager of the Louisburg Cider Mill says products made at the mill are not the source of an E. coli outbreak.

State health investigators have confirmed seven cases of E. coli that may have originated during the mill's Ciderfest in late September and early October.

Mill president Josh Hebert told The Kansas City Star that state and federal investigators tested manufactured products, processing equipment and some retail items at the mill and all the samples came back negative.

Herbert says it's the first time in 39 years of business that his mill has had such an issue.

He told customers in a letter that the business will continue to help with the investigation to find out how the outbreak occurred and how to avoid it.
