Illinois cases range from a 3-year-old to a 60-year-old. The state Department of Public Health says they have occurred in Oak Park and in the following counties: Cass, DuPage, Madison, Peoria, Will and Williamson.

Department spokeswoman Melaney Arnold says the first illness in Illinois began in March, while the last reported case was June 29.

Federal authorities haven't identified a source for the outbreak, and no recall has been issued.
