Class action lawsuit against dog food manufacturer

FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- A lawsuit has been filed against the parent company of dog food manufacturer Big Heart Brands after it was discovered some of its products contain a drug used to euthanize animals.

The class action was filed in California for negligent misrepresentation after our ABC affiliate in Washington D.C. tested 62 samples of dog food.

They found that nine of the 15 cans of Big Heart Brands gravy train tested positive for the drug.

Big Heart Brands also makes meow mix, milk bone, and Kibbles' n Bits.

Following the suit, Smuckers, the owner of Big Heart Brands, voluntarily recalled several of its products.
