Union of Spam and Muscle Milk raises eyebrows

|By:, SA News Editor

Hormel's (HRL) purchase of CytoSport for $450M has raised a few eyebrows in the food sector.

The high price tag for the maker of Muscle Milk indicates some other bidders were on the prowl for a quick entry into the sports nutrition category, theorize analysts.

Shares of Vitamin Shoppe (VSI) and GNC Holdings (GNC) are on watch.
