Milberg Weiss Announces the Filing of a Nationwide Class Action Suit Against Leading Pet Food Manufacturer Menu Foods for Selling Pet Food Containing Rat Poison

Milberg Weiss Announces the Filing of a Nationwide Class Action Suit Against Leading Pet Food Manufacturer Menu Foods for Sellin

LOS ANGELES, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 03/29/07 -- The law firm of Milberg Weiss & Bershad LLP announces the filing of a nationwide class action lawsuit on behalf of purchasers of "cuts and gravy" style cat and dog food recalled by Menu Foods Income Fund ("Menu Foods") based in Ontario, Canada.

The class action, Howe v. Menu Foods, was filed in the United States District Court for the Central District of California. The Complaint alleges Menu Foods was negligent in the manufacture and continued widespread sale of its "cuts and gravy" style pet food products. Menu Foods allegedly knew of contamination problems in late February, but did not initiate a nationwide recall until March 16, 2007. New York state health officials identified aminopterin, a banned toxic substance used to kill rats in other countries, as the contaminant on March 24, 2007. The Complaint seeks compensation, including veterinary and other expenses, for all those who purchased any of the 95 brands subject to the recall, regardless of when they were produced.

The nationwide recall includes popular brands such as Iams, Nutro, and Eukanuba and private-label brands sold by retailers Wal-Mart, Safeway, Petsmart, and others. Veterinary professionals estimate thousands of pets across the nation will die of kidney failure or become very sick with similar symptoms as a result of consuming the contaminated products.

If you purchased pet food recalled by Menu Foods and would like to learn more about this matter, please contact Sabrina Kim at (213) 617-1200 or (800) 320-5081.
