Default Big Class Action Suit, Purina, Science Diet more..

<span style='font-size: 11pt'>There is currently a class action lawsuit being filed against several large pet food producers for the generally disgusting stuff often included in the food. If you haven't read other reports already you may be in for an upsetting surprise. Anyway, if you've fed one of these brands and feel you were cheated into thinking it was healthy, you may be interested in signing up. </span>

<u>Don't read this part if you have a weak stomach:</u>

The approximate $58,000,000,000 spent by consumers on pet food over the last
four years has been without the knowledge that the “wholesome,” “quality,” “premium” or
“gourmet” food that they are feeding their companion animals was made wholly or partially of
inedible garbage unfit for human consumption, including, but not limited to, restaurant grease,
roadkill, hair, blood, pus, esophagi, chicken heads, feet and intestines, cow brains, excrement,
fetal tissue, moldy grains, hulls, styrofoam packaging from discarded supermarket meat,
euthanized animals, including cats and dogs, and/or diseased, dying, disabled and dead animals.

No, this is just lawyers making sure they make money. So those of you that use these products and trust them - just another price increase for you and very little money for those that include themselves in the suit - you might get $5.00 in the end. Only one getting rich are the attorneys.

Hate it. Work for them tho.

Royal canine is the only one that surprises me to be on the list.

I absolutely don't agree about lawsuits. Unless the governement steps in and regulates, the only protection the public has against corporate fraud is lawsuits. Most, if not all, of the so called "frivilous" lawsuits you've heard about are total lies and have been spoon fed to the public to try to shame people into not filing suit, or to support tort reform.

News to me too.
I feed Pro Plan. Will all my dogs die?
It's the only one DaKota does well on & actually eats.

I forwarded this, just because some people I know feed grocery store blends. It may scare them into researching kibble.

OK, I am not good at reading legal mumbo jumbo, but I do not see where Royal Canin was listed as a defendant. If someone can point that out to me fine, other wise I am editing the list and removing it.

If there are others that should be on the list please say so and they will be removed also.

If this is going to be posted it should be accurate.
