$32M Blue Buffalo Settlement Approved


This is a settlement for the lawsuit.

Santa Clara, CA: A$32 million settlement has been approved in a consumer fraud class action lawsuit pending against Connecticut-based Blue Buffalo, a leading natural pet food maker.

The class actions, brought by consumers in several suits across and country and which were consolidated into Multi District Litigation in 2014, alleged that certain Blue Buffalo products were not consistent with its "True Blue Promise."The label indicates the products contain no chicken by-product, along with no corn, wheat, soy or artificial flavors, colors or preservatives. However, this, consumers claimed, was not the case, stating they paid a premium for the pet food products, but were misled. A total of 13 class actions were brought against Blue Buffalo over its alleged false advertising.

The Blue Buffalo settlement, originally reached in December 2015, will provide customers who filed a claim but couldn't provide a receipt, with up to $100. Customers who filed a claim and have receipts will receive up to $2,000. Full details available at - https://www.petfoodsettlement.com/.

According to Blue Buffalo, they are not guilty of any wrong doing, stating that it was defrauded by a supplier that provided its chicken byproduct.

"According to Blue Buffalo, they are not guilty of any wrong doing, stating that it was defrauded by a supplier that provided its chicken byproduct."

So if it does not contain "chicken byproduct" why do they have a "chicken byproduct" supplier?
