TORONTO, April 16, 2015 /CNW/ - A class action lawsuit has been commenced against Nestlé Canada Inc. (carrying on business under the name Nestlé Purina Petcare Canada) by Colleen Gendron on behalf of all Canadian pet owners who purchased dry dog food manufactured and sold by Nestlé Canada Inc. under the brand name Beneful®. The claim alleges that this dog food contains substances that are or can become harmful to dogs, and it is therefore not fit for canine consumption.
The claim alleges that Beneful® dry dog food contains propylene glycol, and toxins including mycotoxins which can be poisonous to dogs. Symptoms of toxin poisoning can include sudden onset of stomach and related internal bleeding, liver malfunction or failure, kidney failure, vomiting, diarrhea, dehydration, weight loss, seizures, and bloat.
None of the allegations in the statement of claim have been proven in court, and it is expected the defendant will deny liability.
The Plaintiff is represented by the law firm Paliare Roland Rosenberg Rothstein LLP. Paliare Roland Rosenberg Rothstein LLP is working in co-operation with the San Francisco law firm Ram, Olson, Cereghino & Kopczynski LLP who are lead counsel in a similar proposed class action brought on behalf of American pet owners who fed their dogs Beneful® dry dog food.
Paliare Roland Rosenberg Rothstein LLP is continuing to collect information from individuals who believe their pets have exhibited signs of toxin ingestion after consuming Beneful® dry dog food. If you believe your pet became ill from eating Beneful® dry dog food, please let us know.
