It was determined that a small batch of Uncle John’s Fresh Apple Cider produced earlier this month was contaminated with E.coli bacteria. The batch was produced on October 16, 2015 and was sold at the farm between October 17, 2015 and October 19, 2015.  
It is important to note that the E.coli bacteria cannot sustain during the fermentation process used in making hard cider. It does not provide the right environmental factors (i.e. oxygen) for the bacteria to continue to grow. There is no chance that any of the Uncle John’s Hard Cider produced or sold has been contaminated with E.coli.

Signs and symptoms of E.Coli infection usually occur three to four days after exposure. Signs and symptoms include:  diarrhea, abdominal cramping, and nausea. Patrons who visited the farm during this timeframe and purchased fresh apple cider are invited to contact the farm for a full refund.
