Pet owner Frank Lucido has filed a class-action lawsuit in California against Nestle Purina PetCare Company, claiming that Beneful contains toxins have made thousands of dogs sick or even resulted in death. The suit lists propylene glycol and mycotoxins as the substances that are probably the most harmful in the food.
The Lucido family placed their three dogs in three different houses, because they were doing renovations on their home. The one constant is that the dogs were eating Beneful dry kibble dog food beginning in late December or Early January. All three dogs became sick by the end of January, and one of the dogs died. Symptoms included malfunction or liver failure, stomach internal bleeding, diarrhea, weight loss, and vomiting.
Purina believes that the lawsuit is baseless, and that “there are no quality issues with Beneful.”
