I must have been imagining things since I thought that Champion Foods was in negotiation with some other food company over a year ago?

I seem to recall that they were in negotiations with a private equity firm, not another manufacturer?

The last thing I remember with Champion is that they threw a huge fit when Chewy.com was bought by Petsmart and pulled all their food off of Chewy because it was "too corporate."

Which we can only hope is their continued stance and the rumor is actually Purina making a purchase off and Champion telling them to take a hike.
