1,120 cartons of cantaloupe recalled

Raley's grocers is recalling 1,120 cartons of Del Monte cantaloupe sold in Northern California and Nevada after routine testing detected salmonella in some of the produce, according to the California Department of Public Health.

The cantaloupe was sold throughout the San Francisco Bay Area at Raley's and its subsidiaries, Nob Hill Foods and Food Source.

The cantaloupes were purchased between Oct. 5 and Friday, and consumers can exchange the recalled fruit for a full refund.

Salmonella can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, elderly people, and people with weakened immune systems, the CDPH said.

Healthy people infected with it often experience fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. Anyone who has eaten the Del Monte cantaloupe and is experiencing these symptoms should call a healthcare provider.
