We hope this isn't true, but if it is — justice needs to be served!
Nestle Purina PetCare Company is facing a class action lawsuit filed by a man named Frank Lucido who alleges the company's Beneful dry kibble food is the reason for thousands of dogs dying or becoming ill!
The lawsuit was filed in California federal court and it came about after three dogs Mr. Lucido owned in three different houses all became sick with the same symptoms. When one of the dogs died, an autopsy revealed the dog had been poisoned!
And the only constant between the three dogs was the Purina dog food they were eating. The other two dogs remain under veterinary care.
The lawyer for this grieving client took on the case after finding 3,000 similar complaints online!

Here's what the lawyer representing Mr. Lucido said:
Judge was a police K-9, who worked out of the West Deptford Police Department.
He's a retired working dog and a real hero. Sadly, he's also dying, suffering from complications from Cushings Disease.
His handler, Cpl. Michael Franks, said:
"Judge and I had such overwhelming and positive support that day. Though Judge was extremely lethargic and could barely walk the days before the ceremony, he was able to bite onto his favorite protective decoy arm sleeve used in training and carry it into the hospital."
That is the cutest, most tear-jerkiest thing we've ever heard.
Not only did police line the streets to salute the K-9 as he walked past, the whole staff of the animal hospital
