Checks Go Out in Natura Pet Products Class Action Settlement
By Kimberly Mirando
Settlement checks for the Natura Pet Products class action lawsuit settlement went out this week to thousands of Class Members who submitted valid Claim Forms.
The Natura Pet Products settlement resolves a 2011 class action lawsuit (Ko v. Natura Pet Products Inc.) that accused Natura of making false and misleading statements about the human-grade quality of its pet food. These products included Innova, EVO, California Natural, HealthWise, Mother Nature and Karma dog and cat food.
Innova denied the allegations but agreed to create a $2.15 million class action settlement fund to refund consumers and resolve the litigation.
A federal court approved the Natura Pet Products settlement on September 10, 2012, but payments were held up by an appeal filed by an objector to the settlement.
The appeal was dismissed in April 2013, and checks were mailed to qualifying Class Members on June 14. Settlement checks must be cashed or deposited within 120 days of issue.
Most Class Members are reporting they received checks for $43.90.
