DENVER - A California company is recalling cantaloupe because of the potential that they were exposed to salmonella.
A single sample of cantaloupe from DFI Marketing Inc. of Fresno, Calif., tested positive for salmonella, said a news release from the Food and Drug Administration.
"The company is voluntarily recalling this product out of an abundance of caution and no illnesses have been reported," the statement said.
The recall includes 28,000 cartons of bulk product. The cantaloupes are packed in a DFI brand carton with "826 CALIFORNIA WESTSIDE" stamped on the carton.
The cantaloupes were packed on Aug. 26. They may have been distributed from Aug. 27 to Sept. 10, primarily to retail customers.
