Menu Foods Class Action 

In 2008, thousands of pets from across North America became ill or died as a result of consuming pet food manufactured by Menu Foods Inc. Charney Lawyers was contacted by over a thousand pet owners and commenced three national class actions. Charney Lawyers was the only law firm in Canada to commence class actions against national retailers and brand name distributors including Loblaws Inc., Sobeys Inc., Walmart, Pet Smart, The Iams Company and Nutro Products. The lawsuits were ultimately settled for 27 million U.S. and received court approval. Distribution of the settlement proceeds have been delayed because two pet owners in the United States appealed the decision.
