Central Garden & Pet Co . released results for its second quarter ended March 27.

Net sales for the pet products segment were US$222 million, a decrease of 3% compared to the year-ago period. Branded product sales were US$183 million, a decrease of US$7 million compared to last year.

The company accredited the decline in sales to decreased sales of animal health products, which stemmed from a supply issue for one product line. The line is expected to continue at a reduced level through the company's third fiscal quarter.
