A Northern California grocery chain has recalled cantaloupes sold in its stores after detecting salmonella in the fruit during routine testing.

Raley's, a chain centered in the Sacramento area but with locations as far south as Salinas and in Nevada, has voluntarily recalled 1,120 cartons of Del Monte whole cantaloupes because of possible contamination.

The store said cantaloupes currently on its shelves are not affected.

The chain operates grocery stores under the names Raley's, Bel Air, Nob Hill and Food Sources.

The affected cantaloupes were sold Oct. 5 to Friday at Raley's, Nob Hill Foods, Bel Air and Food Sources stores in Nevada and Northern California.

Stores removed the cantaloupes from shelves Friday.

State officials said there had been no reports of illnesses.
