Bruce Newman is currently investigating claims that Midwestern Pet Food, Inc., the manufacturer of Sportmix Energy Plus, Sportmix Premium High Energy, and Sportmix Original Cat food contains potentially lethal levels of aflatoxin. According to the FDA, 28 dogs may have already died as a result of this dangerous pet food. Aflatoxin grows from a mold and is harmful in high doses. Symptoms pets may experience include lethargy, jaundice, and diarrhea. Mr. Newman has been class counsel and represented hundreds of dog and cat owners in connection with the Menu Foods class action in 2007 which involved recalls of over 100 brands of pet food and led to a $24 million settlement as well as another class action in 2012 against Nestle Purina that led to a $6.5 million settlement for pet owners.
If you, a family member or friend has a pet affected by these foods, contact Mr. Newman at 860.583.5200 to know your legal rights and remedies.
