NIES, Circuit Judge.

Upon consideration of each of Sunburst Farms' arguments to the contrary, we conclude that the instant case is controlled by this court's holding in Florsheim Shoe Co. v. United States, 744 F.2d 787 (Fed. Cir. 1984). Accordingly, we affirm on the basis of Chief Judge Re's opinion.
