‹ All News June 16, 2016

On June 16, 2016, Chief Judge Rodney Sippel of the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Missouri granted final approval of a $32 million class settlement in In re Blue Buffalo Company, Ltd. Marketing and Sales Practices Litigation. The settlement provides for cash payments ranging between $100 to $2,000 for consumers nationwide who purchased Blue Buffalo pet foods since 2008.

 

Bursor & Fisher, P.A. filed the first New York case in May 2014 alleging that Blue Buffalo’s pet foods contained chicken/poultry by-product meals in violation of the company’s True Blue Promise.  Once consolidated with the 13 other cases filed across the country, Judge Sippel appointed Bursor & Fisher, P.A. to the Plaintiffs’ Executive Committee.

 

“This is a tremendous settlement for purchasers of Blue Buffalo pet foods,” said Joseph I. Marchese, one of the firm’s partners handling the matter.  “The settlement provides class members with a meaningful cash recovery, and also requires Blue Buffalo to implement quality control procedures to ensure that its pet foods adhere to the True Blue Promise moving forward.”
