Do You Buy Pet Food From Any of These 6 Con Artists?


Quote
Story at-a-glance
A class action lawsuit has been filed in California against several pet industry companies alleging they engaged in price fixing of “prescription” dog and cat food

The named defendants in the lawsuit are Mars Petcare, Nestlé Purina, Hill’s Pet Nutrition, PetSmart and Banfield and Blue Pearl pet hospitals

The suit alleges the pet diets in question contain no drugs or other substances that can’t be found in conventional pet diets, and therefore should not require a prescription from a veterinarian

The lawsuit further alleges that the defendants are colluding to market and selling pet food as prescription pet food to consumers at above-market prices

In other pet food legal news, a judge has dismissed a class action lawsuit against Purina’s Beneful dry dog food

Accusations of "price fixing" isn't exactly the same as all the ingredient lawsuits that have occurred.

Well heck. I should have paid closer attention to the date. Oh well. Pointing it out again isn't a bad thing.

No, it's not, in fact it's a very useful thing.  Can't be said enough, how corrupt these companies are. xx
