McCAIN FOODS TO APPEAL COURT DECISION

 McCAIN FOODS TO APPEAL COURT DECISION
 CHICAGO, May 13 /PRNewswire/ -- A decision by the U.S. District


Court in Portland, Ore., regarding the production of helical french fries is facing objections from McCain Foods Limited.
 The court on May 6 assessed damages of approximately $635,000 against McCain Foods Limited for alleged unauthorized use prior to Aug. 28, 1991, of certain technologies in the production of the helical- shaped french fries.
 "We believe there is no validity to the judgment or the award," said Michael McCain, president and chief executive officer of McCain USA, Inc., the U.S. subsidiary of McCain Foods Limited. "We intend to aggressively appeal this decision with our full resources until all the facts are known. We believe, in the end, we will be vindicated."
 Neither the decision of the court nor the appeal process will affect McCain Foods' ability to produce SuperSpirals products or deliver them to its customers, McCain emphasized. McCain Foods has since developed a new process for its SuperSpirals products which is not affected by the court decision.
