Bruce Newman, of Counsel Attorney at Brown, Paindiris & Scott, has filed a class action lawsuit on behalf of Elizabeth Mawaka against Nestle Purina, Waggin' Train, LLC, Wal-Mart, and Sam's Club following the death of Ms. Mawaka's two boston terriers after they ingested chicken jerky treats. Over a thousand complaints have been made to the FDA because of pet illnesses and deaths after ingesting this food, and currently over a dozen other affected pet owners may be joining the suit, which is currently pending in the US District Court in Connecticut. The chicken jerky treats cause neurological symptoms, liver and kidney failure and may also cause pancreatitis in dogs. Newman has requested that these dog treats be immediately recalled. The case has been accepted by the Judicial Panel on Multi-District Litigation as another action is currently pending in Chicago and it may be transferred to another Judge in the next 6 weeks.
If you, a family member, or friend has a dog affected by this contaminated food, contact Attorney Newman at 860.583.5200 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
