Acquisition of Simmons signifies end of Menu Foods' financial struggle
According to Menu Foods, 99.94% of its units and special trust units voted to approve the deal, which is expected to close in early November pending regulatory approvals. Following a massive petfood recall three years ago involving Menu Foods, the company put itself up for sale after a strategic review earlier this year. The acquisition of Simmons Pet Food marks the end of Menu's struggle to overcome the tainted petfood recall.
