More contaminated dog food products on the market

If you are like many pet owners of companion animals, your cats and dogs are beloved and valued members of your family. You pride yourself on taking good care of them, getting them annual shots, grooming them and feeding them quality pet food and treats.

So, learning of yet another pet food contamination incident is devastating. The latest product involved in the recall is Ol' Roy canned dog food sold exclusively at the 4,700 Walmart stores all over the nation. The company is now stripping its shelves of the contaminated products that contain the euthanasia drug sodium pentobarbital.

It's interesting to note that the retailer has yet to publicly announce a recall. This is the latest example of contaminated pet foods to be sold to consumers, who in turn feed the contaminated feed unknowingly to their much-loved pets — often with tragic results.

As our pets trust us to do right by them during their lifetimes, it is especially disturbing for consumers to discover that they have albeit unknowingly fed contaminated fed pet food and/or treats to their cats or dogs.

Product liability laws cover the manufacture and sale of pet chow. If your beloved cat or dog became ill or died as a result of consuming tainted feed or treats, it may be of small comfort to realize that you do have legal recourse to take action against the negligent manufacturers in these type of contamination cases.

This is important, because our pets depend on us to be their voices when they are placed in harm's way. A Louisville products liability attorney can provide advice and help you seek justice for your pets.
