Kroger Sued Over Pet Food Recall

krogerA class action lawsuit is being filed in Detroit, blaming Kroger for the death of a dog last year after the company issued a pet food recall in 2010.

According to Dayton Daily News, the lawsuit is being filed in a federal court on behalf of customers who purchased pet food containing aflatoxin,  a naturally occurring, toxic chemical by-product from the growth of the fungus Aspergillus flavus on corn and other crops.

When ingested, aflatoxin can cause pets to suffer from lethargy, sluggishness, anorexia, vomiting, bloody diarrhea, yellowing of the eyes and liver disease. According to the law firm backing the case, the lead plaintiffs in the lawsuit have alleged that their pedigreed German Shepherd vomited and became lethargic after ingesting Kroger’s Old Yeller Chunk Dog Food. Despite veterinary visits, the German Shepherd died two days later.

The 2010 recall included Kroger stores in Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, North Carolina, Ohio, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia and West Virginia.
