The negative report about Hormel Foods is not surprising as it made the serious error in 2013 to buy SKIPPY from Unilever, knowing that the name and good will was stolen from Skippy, Inc.

Hormel's law department, aware that Skippy, Inc. will seek cancellation of the SKIPPY peanut butter trademark, just filed 3 more SKIPPY applications, falsely claiming its first date of use is Feb. 1, 1933.
Such an oath, under penalty of the federal criminal code, 18 U,.S.C. 1001 is at their own peril, knowing that Skippy, Inc. sued its predecessor in 1933, in the U,.S. Patent Office, and prevailed.

As to why Hormel risked paying Unilever $700 million for SKIPPY, and decided not to settle the outstanding claims of Skippy, Inc. and the Percy Crosby estate, smacks of a cover-up.
