Menu Foods settles in pet food case
Ontario-based Menu Foods Income Fund announced to settle
lawsuits with pet owners in the United States and Canada. The company's contaminated
food led to the deaths of thousands of dogs and cats in North
"It's a comprehensive settlement," said Amy W. Schulman, a
lawyer for Menu Foods. "It would resolve all the claims." Schulman said she could
not disclose how much the settlements would be worth, but the total costs associated
with the massive recall is expected to be about $53.8 million.
In March 2007, Menu
recalled tens of millions of cans of the pet food when it was discovered that
some contained wheat gluten from China. It was shown that the wheat gluten
contained melamine, an ingredient used for plastic making.
