LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- Huber's Orchard and Winery has released a statement regarding reports E. coli linked to the popular attraction's petting zoo.

We received several reports on Facebook and via email that three Kentuckiana children were exposed to E. coli at Huber's Orchard and Winery, but this information is NOT correct.

The Louisville Metro Health Department confirmed they are investigating three possible E. coli cases but said the source is unknown at this time. Clark County Health Department officials also said there is NO LINK to Huber's Orchard and Winery at this point.

Huber's Orchard and Winery released the following statement:

"On October 8, we became aware of one reported case of E. coli in the Kentuckiana area. Because we were one of the places the family reported as visiting, the Louisville Metro Health Department contacted the Clark County Health Department so that an official inspection could be made. Clark County Health Department released this statement to the Huber family just this morning, “Yes there is a confirmed case of E. coli, referred to us by Louisville Metro Health Dept. Our investigation shows no link to Huber’s at this point.

Our thoughts are with the family that has been affected. Please be assured that nothing is more important to us than the health and safety of each family that visits with us."
