The law firm of Childers, Buck, & Schlueter, LLP (Atlanta, Georgia), is currently investigating property damage claims relating to the recent Menu Foods, Inc., pet food recall which has lead to the serious injury and/or death of hundreds of dogs and cats all over the nation. Based on the numerous comments to our previous posting concerning the pet food recall, many owners are now becoming aware that contaminated pet food was the cause of their pets serious health conditions, including renal failure, and/or death. Given the vast number of pets affected by this recent outbreak, our firm is considering the option of a class action property damage lawsuit to ensure pet owners rights are protected.
According to the most recent reports:
Menu Foods, the Ontario, Canada-based company that produced the pet food, said Saturday it was recalling dog food sold throughout North America under 48 brands and cat food sold under 40 brands including Iams, Nutro and Eukanuba. The food was distributed by major retailers such as Wal-Mart, Kroger and Safeway. Since that recall, two other companies, Nestle Purina PetCare Co. and Hill’s Pet Nutrition Inc., said Saturday that as a precaution they were voluntarily recalling some products made by Menu Foods. A complete list of the recalled products along with product codes, descriptions and production dates was available from the Menu Foods Web site, http://www.menufoods.com/recall. The company also designated two phone numbers that pet owners could call for information 1-866-463-6738 and 1-866-895-2708.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is still investigating this incident and more information surrounding the recall is sure to come up in the coming days and weeks.
All consumers are encouraged to report adverse actions or other problems to the FDA complaint coordinator in their state.
