August 9, 2018- Kohn, Swift & Graf, P.C. is currently exploring Champion Petfoods USA, Inc. and Champion Petfoods LP, for their negligent and intentional practice of failing to fully disclose the presence of heavy metals and toxins in their pet food sold nationwide.
PET FOOD RECALL
Champion Petfoods USA, Inc. and Champion Petfoods LP, manufacture, market, advertise, label, distribute, and sell pet food under the brand names Acana and Orijen throughout the United States. These companies claim their product is “Biologically Appropriate”, meaning the food is intended to resemble what animals would eat in nature. Therefore, customers were convinced that this new class of food was designed to nourish their cats and dogs by providing food made with fresh, natural ingredients. It has been alleged that the companies engaged in false advertising by utilizing packaging and labels that further emphasized “fresh”, “quality”, and “properly sourced ingredients”. However, nowhere in the labeling, advertising, or packaging was there mention of the food containing any amount of heavy metals, chemicals, or toxins.
It has further been alleged that Champion Petfoods USA, Inc. and Champion Petfoods LP, are responsible for the manufacture and sale of Contaminated Pet Foods. These Foods contain levels of arsenic, mercury, lead, cadmium, and/or bisphenol A (“BPA”), all of which are known to pose health risks to humans and animals.
The companies alleged deceptive practices have led consumers to pay a premium for their products and in turn, overpay for the Contaminated Pet Foods. Had these consumers known that the food they were buying did not in fact match the quality and ingredients described on the labels, they would not have purchased the product.
