Smithfield Foods (SFD +0.3%) made an interesting disclosure yesterday in a SEC filing. The company was considering a "potentially significant acquisition" of a large business in the packaged meats sector. The speculation from dealReporter is that it was Hillshire Brands (HSH +1.5%) in the crossfires, an acquisition which makes sense and could be on the table again if regulators stop the Shuanghui International purchase of Smithfield.

    Could also be Oscar Mayer from KRFT, not sure if that's up for sale though.
