On April 5, 2010, the Board of Directors of Pinnacle Foods Finance LLC (the Company) dismissed PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP (PwC) as its independent registered public accounting firm upon recommendation and approval of the Audit Committee (the Audit Committee) of the Companys Board of Directors.
The reports issued by PwC for the two most recent fiscal years of the Company ending December 28, 2008 and December 27, 2009 (the Audit Period) did not contain any adverse opinion or disclaimer of opinion, nor were the reports qualified or modified as to uncertainty, audit scope or accounting principle. During the Audit Period and through April 5, 2010, there were no disagreements between the Company and PwC on any matter of accounting principles or practices, financial statement disclosure, or auditing scope or procedure, which disagreements, if not resolved to the satisfaction of PwC, would have caused PwC to make reference thereto in its report on the Companys financial statements for such years. During the Audit Period and through April 5, 2010, there were no reportable events as defined in Section 304(a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K.
On April 9, 2010, the Board of Directors of the Company approved the engagement of Deloitte & Touche LLP (Deloitte) as its independent registered public accounting firm to audit its financial statements upon recommendation and approval of the Audit Committee. Deloitte was formally engaged by the Company on April 9, 2010.
During the Companys two most recent fiscal years ended December 28, 2008 and December 27, 2009 and through April 9, 2010, the Company did not consult Deloitte with respect to the application of accounting principles to a specified transaction, either completed or proposed, or the type of audit opinion that might be rendered on the Companys financial statements or any other matters or reportable events as set forth on Item 304(a)(2)(i) and (ii) of Regulation S-K.
The Company has provided PwC with a copy of the disclosures it is making in this Current Report on Form 8-K (the Current Report) and has requested that PwC furnish the Company with a letter addressed to the Securities and Exchange Commission stating whether it agrees with the statements made by the Company with respect to PwC in this Current Report and, if not, stating the respects in which it does not agree. A copy of the letter, dated April 9, 2010, is attached as Exhibit 16.1 to this Current Report.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned thereto duly authorized.
