Tainted cantaloupe from Indiana is the suspected cause of salmonella cases around the country.
Sabrina Miller of the Illinois Department of Public Health said 71 cases been identified in her state. Eight of those people have been hospitalized.
Miller said the investigation is still ongoing and the fruit is to be avoided.
"If you do have some of this cantaloupe from southwestern Indiana and you haven't eaten it yet, toss it," Miller said.
