Champion Pet Food is facing another class action lawsuit, this time regarding Orijen and Acana Cat Food.
Filed in Illinois on June 22, 2018 – is another class action lawsuit against Champion Pet Food “for their negligent, reckless, and/or intentional practice of misrepresenting and failing to fully disclose the presence of heavy metals and toxins in their pet food sold throughout the United States.” This particular lawsuit is specific to Orijen and Acana Cat Food. The foundation of this Champion Cat Food lawsuit is similar to the previous dog food lawsuit, the pet food company is accused of selling cat food that “contain levels of arsenic, mercury, lead, cadmium, and/or bisphenol A (“BPA”) — all known to pose health risks to humans and animals, including cats.”
The lawsuit provides the following lab results:
Excerpts from the lawsuit:
Arsenic is deadly to cats in doses of just one to twelve milligrams per pound of body weight.
The Contaminated Cat Foods contain arsenic, which can affect the gastrointestinal and cardiovascular systems, as well as lead to circulatory collapse.
Additionally, the Contaminated Cat Foods contain mercury, which can cause damage to the kidneys and to the cardiovascular, nervous, and neurological systems in cats.
Side note: Both the dog food lawsuit and this cat food lawsuit quotes Champion Pet Foods trademarked claim of “Biologically Appropriate”. It appears someone else has challenged Champion with this trademark and won. Champion Pet Food cancelled their trademark in June 2018.
