Class Action Lawsuit Filed against Kroger for Pet Food Recall

Published on Aug 30, 2012 at 11:46 am in Class Actions.

A Michigan law firm has filed a class action complaint against the Kroger Company for a prior recall issued for pet food, according to a Wane.com news report. The Cincinnati-based company recalled a total of 68,313 bags of pet food in December 2010 because of a potential Aflatoxin contamination, which is a toxic by-product of the growth of fungi and mold on corn. If this by-product is ingested by pets, it may cause serious side effects, such as anorexia, vomiting, liver disease, and lethargy.

The recall involved ten different brands of pet food in 19 states, including Kentucky, Michigan, Georgia, Illinois, Tennessee, and Texas.

Amazon Faces Class Action Lawsuit over Zappos Data Breach

Published on Jan 25, 2012 at 7:44 pm in Class Actions.

According to Paidcontent.org, online shoe retailer Zappos is facing a national class action suit brought by angry consumers. The Amazon-owned shoe company sent a mass e-mail to their customers on January 16 stating that 24 million customer accounts had been breached following an incident in which hackers obtained names, phone numbers, encrypted passwords, e-mails, and the last four digits of buyers’ credit card numbers.

The class action lawsuit claims Amazon failed to properly encrypt and secure customer information, and therefore violated a part of the Fair Credit Reporting Act. The lawsuit seeks unspecified damages for the 24 million customers.
