Possible lawsuits against Canidae, Nutro; Canidae responds
Two law firms are gearing up for possible class action lawsuits against Canidae and Nutro, whose products allegedly caused pet illnesses, according to a story from Consumer Affairs.
Menu Foods, which makes some Nutro petfood products, issued a series of recalls in 2007, after reports of dog illnesses where at least 10 deaths occurred. The Pet Food Products Safety Alliance says it found high levels of copper and zinc when it tested Nutro petfood in August 2008.
Another class action lawsuit against Menu Foods recently settled for US$24 million.
