Champion Pet Foods Faces Pentobarbital Contamination
A class action recently revealed that in May 8, 2018, Champion Petfoods USA Inc. was the latest pet food company to contain pentobarbital. The Company was informed that three shipments of beef tallow delivered by their supplier were contaminated with pentobarbital, a tranquilizer often used to euthanize sick or fatally injured animals. It tested its products and retained its products in factories and from distributors but some potentially contaminated pet foods may have been sent to retailers and purchased by consumers. The Champion reveal follow several other recalls since 2017 involving pentobarbital in pet food. Andersen Sleater Sianni represents consumers of pet foods that might not be what they were represented to be and are potentially contaminated. Click here to read more about Champion situation.
