Party Animal Pet Food has filed a lawsuit against co-packer Evanger’s Pet Food claiming they (Party Animal) suffered damages over $20 million. This lawsuit leaks another significant piece of information about Evanger’s; moving assets in an effort to “avoid liability”.
The Party Animal Pet Food v. Evanger’s Pet Food lawsuit was filed on May 5, 2017. Party Animal is suing for breach of contract, breach of warranty and fraud. The suit claims Party Animal Pet Food has suffered damage to its reputation, which “has led to a significant loss of retailers and consumers. Plaintiff’s monetary damages exceed $20,000,000.” Party Animal claims “Defendants (Evanger’s Pet Food and Nutripack LLC) breached their part of the agreement by supplying cans that contained pentobarbital, which is neither fit for pet/animal consumption nor unadulterated.”
The Party Animal lawsuit is filed against Evanger’s Pet Food and their sister company Nutripack. The sister company is included in the suit because…quoting the lawsuit:
Plaintiff (Party Animal) has had an ongoing business relationship with Evanger’s for approximately ten (10) years. In February 2017, Plaintiff started receiving invoices from Nutripack instead of Evanger’s. Plaintiff’s representative spoke to Holly Sher (a representative of both Evanger’s and Nutripack) by phone in early April 2017 and asked why the invoices recently changed to reflect Nutripack and to whom payment should be made. Ms. Sher stated that they were afraid of getting sued because of the recent recalls, and they were taking money out of Evanger’s. She also stated that they did not want to receive any money into Evanger’s and would instead run all operations under Nutripack.
Defendants worked together to defund Evanger’s and move its assets into Nutripack in an effort to avoid liability, as stated by Ms. Sher in April 2017.
