The law firm Call, Jensen & Ferrell announce a Class Action Complaint against Purina Pet Foods and Petco pet store. The suit, based on “unjust enrichment” and “fraud” was filed September 3, 2009 in the Superior Court of California, Los Angeles.
“Nestlé Purina PetCare Company market and sell the “Purina Pro Plan Selects Formula” brand of dry pet food. They charge unwary pet owners more than double the amount of comparable quality pet food by claiming that Purina Pro Plan pet foods contain no “animal by-products”, which many consumers believe are dangerous to their pets. This claim is absolutely false.
In reality, Defendants’ products contain “chicken meal” and “fish meal.” Chicken meal is the rendered dried meal from flesh, skin and other parts including carcasses of chickens. It can also include the rendered, dry product of chicken by-products, such as the intestinal tracts, spleens and other internal organs and blood.
Fish meal is “ground dried fish used as fertilizer and as feed for domestic livestock.” Fish meal is further defined as “a commercial product made from both whole fish and the bones and offal from processed fish.
Thus, pet owners who have purchased Purina Pro Plan pet foods have paid more than double the price they should have paid, under the false belief that the pet food was free of animal by-products.
Plaintiffs bring this lawsuit to enjoin this ongoing deception, to raise public awareness, to hold the defendants accountable, and to recover the many millions of dollars of profits generated by these false claims.”
