Illinois is now up to four possible cases of a tropical stomach bug that's sickened more than three-hundred-twenty people across fifteen states. The highest number of cases is in Iowa, followed by Texas. There are also cases in Wisconsin and Ohio. The illness is caused by a parasite called cyclospora, and it's believed contaminated food is behind the outbreak, possibly imported fruits or vegetables, but investigators are still trying to determine the source.
