The cause of the cryptosporidiousis from the Pike County Fall Color Drive in apple cider is now known.
A test done by the CDC on environmental and human specimens has confirmed that this illness was due to cow manure contamination.
This unpasteurized apple cider was made on a private family farm in Adams County specifically for family consumption and sale at the Pike County Fall Color Drive October 17-18.
This cider was not produced at a licensed cider manufacturer or orchard.
Cattle were on the farm near the site of the apple cider press.
