The Background

Bend Pet Express brought Blue Buffalo products into the store in November of 2013. We immediately removed it from our shelves 6 months later when the Nestlé Purina PetCare Company v. Blue Buffalo lawsuit was filed. The lawsuit claimed false advertising. We are committed to providing you with the highest quality products and wouldn’t allow Blue Buffalo to stay on our shelves with such huge claims against the brand.

Then a class action suit was filed.

Blue Buffalo reached a $32 million settlement over claims that its products were free of poultry byproducts and didn’t contain corn, wheat, soy, artificial flavors, colors of preservatives. Laboratory testing showed the pet food did contain byproducts.

“More than a year ago, we informed our Pet Parents about the misconduct of a former ingredient supplier and a broker. While we will continue to pursue our claims against them, we decided that it is in the best interest of our Pet Parents and our company to resolve the class actions now,” said Bill Bishop, chairman and founder of Blue Buffalo.

“Blue Buffalo’s announcement of a $32 million consumer class action settlement – the largest pet food class action settlement ever – comes a full seven months after Blue admitted mislabeling products and 19 months after Purina sued Blue Buffalo for false advertising and misleading pet parents. Purina is pleased Blue Buffalo is beginning to accept responsibility for its false advertising and mislabeling. Purina’s separate false advertising case against Blue Buffalo continues.” – Nestle Purina
