New Jersey Judge Approves Pet Food Class Action Settlement
Bellas & Wachowski filed one of the first class action lawsuits against the manufacturers of contaminated pet food in early 2007. This was one of many cases which were filed nationally. All of the cases were consolidated into a multi-district case and were transferred to a Judge in New Jersey to resolve.
On May 30, 2008, the Judge approved a settlement of a class action regarding contaminated pet food claims against the manufacturers. You can check the products you've used or purchased on the recalled product list.
If you and your pet were affected by poisonous pet food and/or treats that were recalled after March 16, 2007, you may be entitled to claim a part of the $24,000,000 cash Settlement Fund.
