Dog owners in eight different states have filed a class action wrongful death lawsuit for their animals that were killed or made sick from eating contaminated chicken jerky treats from China. The lawsuit is against Nestle Purina, the maker of two popular brands of the dog treats, as well as the stores that sold them.
The Food and Drug Administration has refused to release results on inspections of the deadly treats, which may have caused over 1,000 illnesses and deaths in pets across the United States. The treats allegedly contain toxins that cause kidney failure in pets.
The dog owners are also suing Wal-Mart, Target and Costco, the largest retailers that sell the products. The stores have not yet pulled the products from their shelves, and they maintain that the treats are safe.
The lawsuit includes a large number of dog owners, who claim that their otherwise young and healthy dogs were killed by the allegedly defective treats.
