    Default Purina law suit

    http://topclassactions.com/lawsuit-s...s-action-says/

    Interestingly my buddy was feeding this to his dog until this weekend. I was up there ice fishing and he was saying his dog was passing nothing but soft stools and seemed inflamed. I told him to try another food and since her guts were already in knots he switched cold turkey. In two days she was pooping normally, loves her new food and has more energy than ever. She is now on a grain free food and the rest of the Beneful is going to be bear bait. Not sure why but Purina doesn't seem to list it's guaranteed analysis on it's website? Maybe it's a marketing thing....

    Iím suspicious of people who don't like dogs, but I trust a dog who doesn't like a person.

    He's lucky his dog didn't die eating Beneful (google it), and yes, Purina seems to do a good job of hiding the ingredients in their foods. Dog food advisor has all that info though..

    May I ask what he's eating now?

    You'd likely be better off shooting a dump bear. I woudn't give Beneful to the bears. You're poisoning your bear meat.

    Ingredients: Ingredients: Ground yellow corn, chicken by-product meal, corngluten meal, whole wheat flour, animal fat preserved with mixed-tocopherols (form of vitamin E), beef, rice flour, soy flour, water, meat and bone meal, propylene glycol, sugar, salt, phosphoric acid, tricalcium phosphate, animal digest, potassium chloride, sorbic acid (a preservative), non-fat yogurt powder, dried carrots, dried peas, dicalcium phosphate, calcium propionate (a preservative), choline chloride, vitamin E supplement, zinc sulfate, ferrous sulfate, red 40, l-lysine monohydrochloride, manganese sulfate, niacin, yellow 5, yellow 6, vitamin A supplement, blue 2, calcium carbonate, copper sulfate, vitamin B12 supplement, calcium pantothenate, thiamine mononitrate,garlic oil, pyridoxine hydrochloride, riboflavin supplement, vitamin D3 supplement, menadione sodium bisulfite complex (source of vitamin K activity), calcium iodate, folic acid, biotin, sodium selenite

    Dog food advisor has been spot on for the most part. Loyall dog food would also be in the Beneful category in my opinion with almost the same ingredient breakdown. I knew it would be a matter of time that this would be happening to Purina and wouldn't even consider going near a Purina product.

    answer:

    In May 2014, Purina filed a lawsuit against competitor Blue Buffalo regarding alleged false advertising. Blue Buffalo advertised that its products contain no meat byproduct or corn, whereas Purina said independent lab tests confirmed that they do. Blue Buffalo made similar allegations against Purina in a counter-suit less than a week later. It also alleged Purina was engaging in what it characterized as a "smear campaign". The National Advertising Review Board and the Advertising Self-Regulatory Council found that Blue Buffalo's advertising was misleading and its claims that competitors were hiding information about their ingredients were unsubstantiated. Blue Buffalo said it disagreed, but would obey the ruling.

    Well I guess from all this expertise I should be switching away from Purina................ Did folks really read whose behind this lawsuit....my heavens!

    Everyone is welcome to feed their choice.

    Almost all the Professional Trainers I know feed Purina Performance......imagine how well they could do if they switched, I'm going to tell them I learned this on the OODF.

    No ones telling you to switch or saying your dogs would do better on another product but it would concern me if I was feeding a Purina Product that was making animals sick. I would be calling my pet food rep asking for any information he or she had to see if it would affect the product line I was feeding. Many forum members have a great deal of experience on this forum, does that sound familiar.
