Macuga, Liddle & Dubin filed a class-action lawsuit in federal court against the Kroger Company on behalf of all customers who purchased recalled petfood contaminated with aflatoxin.
Beginning December 18, 2010, Kroger recalled a total of 10 petfood brands, more than 68,300 bags, which were possibly contaiminated with aflatoxin.
The lawsuit's lead plaintiffs alleged that they fed Kroger's Old Yeller Chunk dog food to their dog, who, in January 2011, vomited and became lethargic. After two veterinary visits, the plaintiffs' dog died.
The recalled petfood was distributed to 19 US states and sold at Kroger, Dillons and Gerbes stores. If your pet suffered any illnesses or damages related to the Kroger petfoods recall, or if you purchased any of the recalled Kroger petfoods, call Macuga, Liddle & Dubin at +1.800.536.0045.
