 HUDSON FOODS, INC. COMPLETES ACQUISITION
 ROGERS, Ark., Sept. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Hudson Foods, Inc.


(NYSE: HFI) announced today that it has completed the acquisition of the Powell Valley Foods facility in Caryville, Tenn., from Kraft General Foods, Inc. Kraft is a wholly owned subsidiary of Philip Morris Companies, Inc. (NYSE: MO). Terms were not disclosed.

"This latest acquisition continues to exemplify the growth of our company. We are very pleased about today's move. We feel it will bring great rewards to the company as a whole."
