by Dr. Chris
This last April Judge Noel Hillman, a U.S. District Court Judge allowed
the $24 million pet food settlement to begin the process of actually paying out claims.Dog Food Secrets Review
This stems the melamine pet food poisonings that happened in 2008So far about 20,000 pet owners have filed claims which means on average the payout will be $1,283.
These pet owners have waited several years for the payout, which has been frustrating, but hopefully this news will bring some relief.
The recall of 2008 was the largest in history.
It involved a factory in China adding melamine to rice protein concentrate and wheat gluten
to increase the protein content.
The contaminated foods were then sent to Menu Foods Ltd in Canada which makes food for:
Hill's Pet Nutrition
Nestle Purina PetCare
Proctor and Gamble
PetcoAbout 1,950 cats and 2,200 dogs died from the incident according to the US Attorney's office.
Over 100 class action lawsuits have been filed over this matter.
