Hills Pet Nutrition, Inc. Voluntarily Recalls Single Product, Prescription
DietT m/dT Feline Dry Food, Only Product Containing Wheat Gluten

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE -- Topeka, KS -- March 30, 2007 -- In accordance with
its over-riding commitment to pet health and well-being, Hill's Pet Nutrition,
Inc. is voluntarily recalling Prescription Diet m/d Feline dry food from the
market. Hill's is taking this precautionary action because during a two-month
period in early 2007, wheat gluten for this product was provided by a company
that also supplied wheat gluten to Menu Foods. U.S. Food and Drug
Administration tests of wheat gluten samples from this period show the
presence of a small amount of melamine. Prescription Diet m/d Feline Dry
represents less than one half of one percent of all Hill's products.

This is the only product Hill's currently sells in the United States that
contains wheat gluten from any supplier. No other Hill's Prescription Diet. or
Science Diet. products are affected by this voluntary recall. Hill's Science
Diet Savory Cuts Feline canned cat foods, manufactured by Menu Foods, were
previously withdrawn from the market as a precaution. Together with this
earlier withdrawal, less than 1% of all Hill's products have been affected.

The voluntary recall of Hill's Prescription Diet m/d Feline dry food involves
discontinuation of all retail sales and product retrieval from sellers. This
recall does not include Prescription Diet m/d Feline canned food which
contains no wheat gluten.

Consumers should stop using this product and return it for a refund. All
Hill's products carry a 100 percent guarantee, and consumers can receive a
refund for recalled product.

Hill's expects to resume shipment shortly of a reformulated version of this
highly beneficial product that will not contain wheat gluten. Please check
with your veterinarian for an alternative Prescription Diet until m/d Feline
dry is reformulated and made available again.

Following is a list of Prescription Diet m/d Feline dry products included in
this recall:

      Recalled product

investigation and made the decision to voluntarily recall these products in
consultation with the FDA. We deeply regret any concern that this has caused
our valued customers.
