Welcome to the Informational Website for the Midwestern Pet Foods Marketing, Sales Practices and Product Liability Litigation Class Action Settlement.

If you are a person or entity residing in the United States who purchased one or more of the pet food products made by Midwestern Pet Foods, Inc. and/or Nunn Milling Co., you may be entitled to monetary benefits under a Class Action Settlement. Payment amounts may be reduced depending on the number of valid claims submitted.

The Defendants deny the allegations in the lawsuit, and the Court has not decided who is right.
