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.

The lead plaintiffs in the lawsuit state that they fed their German Sheperd the Kroger’s Old Yeller Chunk Dog Food, and the dog later became ill and died in January 2011. The class action lawsuit, filed in federal court in Detroit, is being filed on behalf of all customers who purchased the recalled pet food that may have been contaminated by Aflatoxin.

Consumers who may have been affected by this defective product and would like to learn more about this class action lawsuit can call (800) 536-0045.

A class action lawsuit can involve hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of consumers, and it is therefore extremely important to hire an attorney who will protect your rights and best interests throughout the case.
