Wysong’s Lawsuit Dismissed
« on: July 24, 2017, 04:05:10 PM »
Another lawsuit that could have benefited pet food consumers has been dismissed. The judge felt Wysong did not prove their case.

Wysong filed a lawsuit (6 lawsuits) against Mars, Purina, Hill’s, Big Heart, APN, and Walmart pet foods in 2016. The lawsuit challenged the many misleading images found on pet food labels. Quoting the original complaint(s): “In short, the premium meats, fish and vegetables portrayed on [Mars’s, Purina’s, Big Heart’s, Hill’s, Ainsworth, and Walmart’s] pet foods do not fairly represent the actual ingredients of the packages. The portrayals are literally false and thus by their very nature have the capacity to deceive consumers.”

Below are some of the images taken from the 6 lawsuits – they are from pet food labels or the pet food website. Even though every single picture portrays human food, each of the pet food companies involved – including Wysong – manufacture feed grade products.
