Amelia's Grocery Outlet employee Dale Groff stocks a freezer in New Holland, Penn. GDP is rising, but are we growing in the wrong areas? We may be stocking up on too much inventory. - 

It seems frozen food sales have dropped off in the U.S., even as the sale of other packaged goods continues to do relatively well.

News yesterday even found that a Hot Pockets factory, owned by Nestle since 2002, will have to lay off about a hundred workers in California.

In today's Mid-day Extra we ask: why is the frozen food sector hurting?

Here to talk with us is David Donnan, a partner at consluting firm A.T. Kearney.

According to him, the slump in Hot Pocket sales can't really be blamed on fewer college students nuking snacks at 3 a.m.
