What is the Midwestern Pet Foods Class Action About?
A $6,375,000 class action settlement has been agreed to with Midwestern Pet Foods in which it was alleged that Midwestern Pet Foods marketed and sold pet food that resulted in illness and death in pets. The class action lawsuit alleged that some of the pet food was contaminated with dangerous bacteria such as Salmonella or aflatoxin. While the pet food company agreed to a settlement, it is important to note that the Court did not determine whether any wrongdoing had occurred.
