A brush with death following a dog’s consumption of chicken jerky dog treat made in China prompted yet another class action lawsuit against the makers of Milo’s Kitchen jerky pet treats, Del Monte.
Del Monte, Kroger and King Soopers all continued to sell the dangerous Chinese-made Milo’s Kitchen jerky dog treats despite their knowledge of hundreds of pet deaths associated with the treats, the complaint filed in federal court claims.
Previously, similar class action complaints have been filed against Del Monte (Milo’s Kitchen), Nestle-Purina (Waggin’ Train), Kroger, and Wal-Mart among other pet food companies and retailers for selling and/or importing the toxic treats from China. The treats, mainly fed to dogs, include the chicken, duck, pork, yam or combination thereof of treats imported from China. Packages may not indicate the country of origin, so consumers may be unaware that the pet treats they purchase are actually made in China, and not in the U.S.
