Milo’s Kitchen Chicken Jerky Dog Treats Class Action Lawsuit
By Sarah Pierce
The Milo’s Kitchen class action lawsuit was filed by dog-owner Lisa Mazur, who says her healthy 7-year-old dog, Riley Rae, suffered kidney failure and had to be euthanized after being fed Milo’s Kitchen Chicken Jerky Dog Treats. Mazur claims the only change in Riley Rae’s diet was during January 2012 when she fed the Chicken Jerky Dog Treats to her dog “on occasion.” On February 1, Riley Ray became ill and was taken to the vet, where she was diagnosed with kidney failure. Riley Rae was administered intravenous fluids for four days without improvement, forcing Mazur to euthanize her on February 5.
Mazur says she was unaware the Milo’s Kitchen chicken jerky dog treats made in China were included in a November 18, 2011 warning about dog illnesses associated with chicken jerky dog treats made in China.
“Defendants’ packaging did not warn of any dangers from feeding its content to dogs… [and] the warning is downplayed” on the Milo’s Kitchen website, the class action lawsuit says.
