SRK Brings Suit Against Hill’s Pet Nutrition, Inc.

Spector Roseman & Kodroff has filed suit on behalf of a consumer who bought Hill’s Prescription Diet premium dog food. In January 2019 Hill’s recalled its canned Science Diet and Prescription Diet products because they contain toxic levels of Vitamin D.  The recall was issued after Hill’s received numerous reports of sick and dead dogs who had been given the tainted food. 

The complaint is filed in the District of Kansas and alleges breach of warranty and unjust enrichment claims for a nationwide class of consumers and violations of Connecticut law for a sub-class of Connecticut residents.  Other complaints have been filed in courts throughout the country.  The cases will likely be consolidated in the next few months.  For more information contact John Macoretta at 215-496-0300 or jmacoretta@srkattorneys.com.
