Contaminated cantaloupes from Colorado have now caused their first illness in Illinois.

The Public Health Department reported an 82-year-old woman got sick earlier this month and was hospitalized.

The culprit is the listeria bacteria and the fruit comes from a single farm in Colorado.

So far, 35 people have gotten sick and four have died.
