We’re aware of the class action lawsuit filed against Purina, but we do not have any additional information about the cases that may be involved. We’re not aware of any recalls of Beneful products, and have no records of Beneful recalls since we began tracking pet food and pet treat recalls in 2007. Purina has an FAQ on their website that addresses some common questions about Beneful.
Any pet owner or veterinarian who feels that a pet food or pet treat has made a pet ill should report the case to the manufacturer and to the FDA. Purina has provided the following numbers for those who may have questions:
- For veterinarians: 800-222-8387
- For pet owners: 800-778-7462
To report an adverse event associated with pet food, you can submit a report to the FDA at www.safetyreporting.hhs.gov.
