Nestlé Purina Petcare Co. is facing a class action alleging it uses synthetic ingredients in pet food it markets as "natural."
According to Legal Newsline, two pet owners, Adrienne Pietres and Brenda Natoli, along with other pet owners, filed a complaint Oct. 12 in the US District Court for the Southern District of New York against the pet food giant, alleging violation breach of express warranty, violation of New York General Business law and other claims.
The plaintiffs claim in their class action that Nestlé made misleadingly labels its multiple types of wet and dry pet food as "natural" so that health-conscious pet owners purchase a food that does not contain synthetic ingredients.
They allege the company makes false representations about pet food because it contains multiple synthetic ingredients including copper sulfate, pyridoxine hydrochloride, and menadione sodium bisulfite complex.
As well, the plaintiffs said that consumers would not have purchased the product or not have paid as much had they known the products contain synthetic ingredients.
They and the class seek monetary relief, interest, trial by jury, and all other just relief. They are represented by Joshua Arisohn and Julian Diamond of Bursor & Fisher PA in New York City.
