In 2003 an outbreak of hepatitis A brought about the closure of U.S.-based Chi-Chi’s chain of Mexican restaurants. The brand was acquired by Hormel Foods, the Austin (Minn.) maker of Spam, after the chain went bankrupt, but the Chi-Chi's line of salsas, tortillas, microwave meals, and seasonings continues to be produced under MegaMex Foods, a joint venture with Mexico’s Herdez Del Fuerte. Chi-Chi’s accounts for 4.5 percent of U.S. salsa sales.
