March 12, 2019- Kohn, Swift, & Graf, P.C., has filed a class action lawsuit against Diamond Pet Foods for their negligent, reckless, and intentional practice of misrepresenting, failing to test for, and failing to fully disclose the risk and/or presence of heavy metals, toxins, Bisphenol A (“BPA”), and/or unnatural or other ingredients that do not conform to the product labels.
Diamond Pet Foods Proven to Contain Dangerous Ingredients
Diamond Pet Foods claims that its “premium” dog food is made of “the highest quality ingredients and products” for “nutrition-conscious pet owners.” However, in a recently-filed class action complaint, Plaintiffs allege that specific Diamond Pet Foods products were found to contain undisclosed amounts of heavy metals, pesticides, acrylamide, and/or BPA.
Plaintiffs further allege that Defendants engaged in a long-term advertising campaign to convince potential customers that the contaminated dog foods were healthy, natural, and of a superior quality and purity, because they were free of ingredients known to have potential risks to both human and animal health.
Kohn, Swift & Graf, P.C. will strive to achieve justice for those customers in the United States who purchased the contaminated dog food for household or business use.
