SAN DIEGO (Legal Newsline) — A Missouri consumer has filed a class action lawsuit against a pet foods business, alleging fraud and negligent misrepresentation.
Stephanie Brown of Londell, Missouri, filed a complaint, individually and on behalf of all others similarly situated, March 31 in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of California against Dynamic Pet Products, LLC and Frick's Meat Products, Inc., alleging they falsely advertised their product.
According to the complaint, Brown sustained monetary damages from purchasing a bone for her dog Dec. 24, 2014, at a Walmart in Washington, Missouri, which she thought were made out of real ham. The plaintiff alleges the defendants advertise their product as real ham bone despite the product not being made out of ham bone and being dangerous for dogs.
Brown seeks trial by jury, damages, punitive damages, restitution, disgorgement, court costs and all further relief the court grants. She is represented by attorneys Timothy G. Blood, Leslie E. Hurst and Thomas J. O'Reardon II of Blood Hurst & O'Reardon, LLP in San Diego.
