Need Help with D5100 Focusing

I cannot make my D5100 focus on my arm which is about 24-30 inches from the camera. The focus mode is automatic and the focus point is set to single point with the little brackets in the center of the frame. As you can see my arm is out of focus and the background is in focus. I then take a picture of the fruitcake can at roughly the same distance from the camera and it's in focus.

Why can't I get my arm in focus?
