Here we go, the first class action lawsuit has been filed regarding chicken jerky treats from China. This one has been filed against Waggin’ Train and Wal-Mart.
Edelman, Combs, Latturner & Goodwin, LLC of Chicago, IL has filed the first class action lawsuit against Waggin’ Train Jerky Treats and Walmart. They represent plantiff Dennis Adkins, “on behalf of all consumers who purchased certain dog treats manufactured, marketed, distributed or sold by defendants.”

Friend and fellow pet food safety advocate Mollie Morrissette of www.PoisonedPets.com was quoted in the complaint. The complaint did not provide evidence other than copies of complaints filed on ConsumerAffairs.com.
In a Bloomberg.com interview, Nestle Purina (importers of Waggin’ Train jerky treats) stated the treats are “safe to feed as directed.” And Purina intends to “vigorously defend ourselves.”
It is still puzzling what ‘safe to feed as directed’ means. Do these jerky treat importers know something such as why they might not be safe if one dares not to feed as directed? How much more than ‘as directed’ does it take for kidney failure? And why?
I would guess this is the first of many more lawsuits to follow. Jerky treat importers and retailers…don’t say you weren’t warned.
Wishing you and your pet(s) the best,
