Pinnacle Foods Joins Bidders To Acquire Quorn

Pinnacle Foods Inc. (NYSE:PF) has joined bidders looking to gobble up Quorn Foods, Inc. Pinnacle Foods is looking to acquire Quorn as it continues its expansion overseas into the vegetarian market.

An auction process, led by Houlihan Lokey, could start in April 2015.

WhiteWave Foods Introduces Yulu™

WhiteWave Foods has introduced Yulu™, a new Australian-style yogurt brand. Inspired by an authentic Australian recipe, Yulu Double Smoothed™ is made with fresh ingredients to create an extra creamy texture. Yulu Aussie-style yogurt is a full fat yogurt, made with real fruit and double-blended to create a creamy, smooth taste. Each 5.3-ounce cup of Yulu yogurt is packed with nine grams of protein. Yulu is currently available in five varieties, including: Blueberry, Honey, Raspberry, Strawberry, Vanilla Bean. The first Aussie-style yogurt from WhiteWave Foods, Yulu enters the growing yogurt category as a good solution for consumers who want a delicious and nutritious yogurt without the tangy, tart taste often associated with high-protein yogurts. Available in grocery stores, supercenters and natural food stores nationwide, Yulu yogurt can be found near similar products in the dairy aisles.

WhiteWave Foods Voluntarily Recalls Horizon Cheddar Sandwich Crackers Due to Undeclared Peanuts

WhiteWave Foods is voluntarily recalling 7.5 oz packages of Horizon Cheddar Sandwich Crackers because they may contain undeclared peanuts. People who have an allergy or sensitivity to peanuts run the risk of a serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume this product. No illnesses have been reported to date. The company believes fewer than 62,160 boxes of product have been shipped to retailers and wholesalers in the states of Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, New Hampshire, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Virginia, Washington and Wisconsin. The recall is taking place due to an inadvertent packaging error. The outer package is labeled as a cheddar sandwich cracker and the inner package contains the peanut butter sandwich crackers. WhiteWave's sales team is working with distributors to actively recover any impacted product remaining on store shelves, and the Company has implemented measures to prevent this from happening in the future. Consumers should check the top of the individual box and look for a "best before" date of 17 May 2015, and check the bottom of the box for a Universal Product Code (UPC) of 42365 00464. This is the only product involved in the recall. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has been notified of this recall, and it is coordinating its communication efforts with the organization Food Allergy Research & Education (FARE).
