Purina Vs Blue Buffalo Lawsuit
- by Ayden
A recent court case has seen Purina suing Blue Buffalo for a smear campaign. The NAD scolded Blue Buffalo for mislabeling their chicken and turkey feed. The company has since settled the suit with Diversified and stepped away from the lawsuit. The plaintiffs have a good chance of winning. But it will be important to remember that neither company has publicly shared its independent lab analysis.
The Blue Buffalo lawsuit was filed on May 14, 2014, and it claims that Purina and Blue Buffalo violated federal and state laws.
In response to the allegations, the company paid US$32 million to settle the case. In the settlement, Blue-Buffalo acknowledged that their pet food contained poultry by-product meal. Although the settlement was not the final judgment, the company is still liable for misrepresentations made by the NAD.
During the trial, the judges will consider the merits of each side’s case. In the most extreme case, Blue-Buffalo has been found to contain poultry by-product meal. The company admits this in their lawsuit, despite advertisements and marketing that said otherwise. The judge dismissed several of the claims, including the false advertising claim. The decision is expected to be final in the coming weeks.
The court is reviewing the evidence.
The lawsuit will focus on the food ingredient in question. The manufacturer, Blue Buffalo, is the defendant in the suit. The supplier has admitted the poultry by-product meal was added to their pet foods. In the meantime, they continue to deny the allegations. Nonetheless, the case may lead to a settlement soon. It will be interesting to see how it turns out.
The Blue Buffalo lawsuit has been largely settled. The plaintiffs had been seeking a court order to prevent the company from using the vilified ingredient in its pet foods. The claim also has a lot of flaws, including the fact that it slammed the ingredient in its advertising. A jury would have to decide whether Blue Buffalo can be sued for a second time. The jury could still decide on this issue.
The NAD did not investigate the claims of misleading advertising by Blue Buffalo in its lawsuit.
There is no evidence to support the claims, although it’s important to understand that the plaintiffs have no proof of guilt. However, it does not mean that the consumers are at fault. They have the right to sue for defamation and unfair trade practices. A judge can rule in favor of the plaintiff or against the defendant.
In a May 2014 lawsuit, Blue Buffalo sued Purina for allegedly using poultry by-product meal in their cat food. The lawsuit cites evidence of the food’s harmful effects on consumers. As the company’s CEO, the company had no legal responsibility for the incident, but it was responsible for the millions of dollars in consumer losses. The settlement has made Blue Buffalo a better company for the consumers.
In the most recent lawsuit, Blue Buffalo sued Purina for using chicken by-product meal in its pet food.
The company had also claimed that the ingredients were unnatural and caused the dogs to die. The judge dismissed many of the claims in favor of Blue Buffalo, and the lawsuit was settled. The company’s response to the case has been a huge relief for consumers and the industry. While the lawsuit was filed on May 14, it is not yet settled.
The lawsuit involves the use of a by-product meal in dog and cat food. The FDA found the chemical in the food and traced it back to a supplier in China. While Blue Buffalo did not admit that it had used the ingredient, it claimed that the by-product meal was safe for dogs. The two companies agreed to settle the suit and paid US$32 million to settle the case. This settlement did not resolve the NAD’s claims, but it did result in the Blue Buffalo’s decision.
The Blue Buffalo lawsuit alleges that the company has used chicken by-product meals in their dog food.
The company has denied this and claims that its ingredients are not harmful to dogs. The lawsuit claims that Blue Buffalo’s claim was unfounded. It says that it was unaware that the company used poultry by-product meal in its dog food. But the company said the ingredient was safe and that it voluntarily removed it from its food.
