Purina Beneful Dog Food Kills Dogs, Class Action Says

Picture of Beneful dog food bags
Nestle Purina Petcare Company was hit with a class action lawsuit alleging that its Beneful dog food includes toxic substances which are capable of killing dogs.

According to the Beneful class action lawsuit filed in a California federal court by plaintiff Frank Lucido on Feb. 5, Beneful is responsible for making thousands of dogs either seriously ill or causing them to die, which happened to one of his own dogs.

Lucido owned three dogs — a German Shepherd, an English Bulldog and a Labrador. He bought a bag of Beneful for the first time in late December 2014 or early January 2015 and each dog began eating Beneful exclusively, the Beneful class action lawsuit explains.

  1. Firstly, THANK you so much for helping to get this lawsuit out to a wider audience. The group "Is BENEFUL by Purina KILLING or SICKENING Dogs? Post YOUR Story!" was started by me in 2013 after I heard reports of dogs dying from Beneful.

    Two years later, we have 4,000 members whose dogs have sickened or, even worse, DIED, from this terrible "food". And not just dogs .. we now have a good
    contingent of cat owners whose cats have died from Purina food.. hemorrhage,
    seizures, rapid onset of liver disease, kidney failure.

    Here is a VERY recent case, posted just a few days ago. Watch it and be horrified!

    These two labs got sick- the owners are two of the lucky ones. Cassandra Angelique and Mike Garnett-Zero watched as both dogs started seizing within an hour of receving a SINGLE Beneful Healthy Smile treat. The owners could hardly believe it so when the dogs recovered, they did it again.. same result. They are now submitting reports to both the FDA and the US Department of Agriculture.

    POISONED! Seizures after ONE Beneful Healthy Smile Treat - in BOTH 8 month old pups!!

    Cassandra Angelique's dog - comatose after eating just ONE Beneful Healthy Smile Treat. The other puppy was staggering around. This pup is also 8 months old AND they repeated the "experiment" just to make sure it WAS the treats

    Like Purina's killer toxic jerky treats (18% Propylene Glycol), BENEFUL is 1% Propylene Glycol; the FDA has been warning about contaminated PG from China since 2011, but there are NO tests to check for the suspected toxins, and only maybe 1% of imported raw ANYTHING ever gets tested.. a drum of INDUSTRIAL GRADE PG was found by the FDA in one of the Chinese jerky treat plants but the FDA were, unsurprisingly, not allowed to remove it or test it.

    On that basis, ANY oils have the potential to be industrial grade and contaminated.. including Sorbitol (used in some Beneful lines) and Glycerin (used extensively in both cat and dog food and treats). AVOID AT THE RISK OF POISONING YOUR PETS!

    Other issues are potentially lethal mycotoxins from molds - Corn, Soy, Wheat can all be easily contaminated with excess moisture during harvest, storage, and even after the food is packed.

    Beneful, Dog Chow, Friskies, Cat Chow, Meow Mix, should NEVER be fed to your pets.. it is like playing Russiam Roullette with your pet's life!

    We have recovered numerous dogs from the brink of death in some cases using an established protocol of easily available ingredients. Many other animals who have been sick for years, have regained their puppyhood. Details in the group - Liquid Milk Thistle Extract, Home-made Chicken Broth, Coconut Oil and Life Extension Super Biocurcumin.. followed by a progression to a grain and potato free canned and/or dry, and/or raw or home-made diet. I have prepared extensive files on grain and potato free canned and dry foods for dogs and cats for all budgets for the group.

    Oh, and before people pat themselves on the back for not feeding Beneful we hold the same disdain for not just ALL Purina foods, but Hill's Ol' Roy, IAMS, Royal Canin, Ehkanuba, including those terrible "Prescription" foods.. also Nutro, Kibbles n Bits, Kit n Kaboodle.. I assure you this would be a VERY long list if I mentioned them all!
