Northwest Arkansas News November 10, 2009

SPRINGDALE —"Simmons Pet Food recently paid $2.6 million for the building that patio furniture maker Syroco Inc. used to occupy, along with 59 acres at 1700 E. Quarter Road in Siloam Springs.

"The 382,434-square-foot building will be used as additional warehouse space for the Siloam Springs-based pet food manufacturer.

"Simmons announced in July an $8 million expansion to its pet food business, which includes a new plant in Decatur that will have 15 employees by late this year. The plant is planned to open in March and employ about 80 people.

"Simmons said the expansion will help the company better serve its private-label customers."

They recently started canning for Wellness.  Not sure about the other brands, but I think there's a list somewhere on here from when we were discussing that topic.

Off the top of my head--they do some canned WalMart/Ol' Roy and possibly some Special Kitty.

Note they had the same type of problems as Evanger's in 2008.

Did anyone else see this?  I have been remiss in not keeping up with all my e:mails....it says "Deviations From Low Acid Canned Food Regulation/Adulterated".

Simmons Pet Food Inc makes Twin Pet, Strongheart, Kitty, Fit & Active and Healthy By Design and says they sell to several major retailers as well as regional grocery stores across the U.S. I have never heard of this brand before so perhaps its sold in a different part of the U.S......
