Gifford et al., v. Pets Global Inc.
Gifford v Pets Global Settlement
Case No. 2:21-CV-02136-CJC-MRW

Welcome to the Gifford v Pets Global Settlement Website

If you bought certain Zignature® pet food products labeled as “Grain Free” or “Chicken Free,” you may be eligible for benefits in a class action settlement

 

Important Update: The Court will hold a hearing on December 12, 2022 to consider
the Plaintiffs' Motion for Final Approval of Class Action, and the Plaintiffs' Motion of Attorneys' Fees, Expenses, and Service Awards 


What is this about?

Plaintiffs claim that certain pet food products manufactured or produced by Defendant Pets Global Inc (“Defendant” or “Pets Global”) and marketed or labeled as “grain free” or “chicken free,” were actually determined through third party testing to contain grain and chicken. Pets Global denies these allegations and believes that it has valid defenses to these claims. The Court has not decided who is right or wrong. Instead, both sides have agreed to the Settlement to avoid the risk and cost of further litigation.

Who is Included?

The Class consists of all individuals in the United States who purchased certain Zignature pet food Products marketed or labeled as “Grain Free” or “Chicken Free” for personal, family or household use, and not for resale, from June 2, 2017 through June 24, 2022 (the “Class Period”).

What does the Settlement provide?

If the Settlement is approved by the Court, Pets Global agrees to monetary benefits to Class Members who timely submit a valid claim. Pets Global also agrees to revise product labels and marketing references so that any product label that makes a “chicken free” and “grain free” claim no longer contains those representations. Further, Pets Global has agreed to audit its suppliers moving forward.
