      *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.

      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:
