RENO, Nev. (AP) - A Reno cafe and grocery store that was tied to an E. coli outbreak is closing its doors.

Reno Provisions will operate for a final time Sunday with everything left marked down by 50 percent.

Chef and owner Mark Estee announced the closure on his Facebook page.

Health officials say a dessert manufactured and sold there was what caused customers at the Twisted Fork restaurant to become ill in October.

They say there were at least 21 confirmed or probable cases of E. coli.

A couple is currently suing Reno Provisions for $10,000 over the outbreak.

Estee tells the Reno Gazette-Journal (https://on.rgj.com/1VxageE) that he plans to convert part of the property into a casual dining restaurant.

Estee says he was already losing money before the E. coli incidents.
