Hormel Foods Corp. is suing a Dutch company that has a package similar to Hormel's Spam product. Zwaneburd Food Group, which manufactures its “Perm” canned lunch meat in Cincinnati, Ohio, is accused of using a yellow-on-blue design that's “confusingly similar” to Spam's package design, reports the Associated Press.

Hormel and Zwaneberg have a manufacturing agreement that allows Zwaneberg to make lunch meat on behalf of Hormel, but it's agreed not to sell that meat to companies that use packaging that could be confused with Hormel's. According to Hormel, it then discovered that Zwaneburg was selling Perm with its yellow-on-blue design.
