Dynamic Pet Products The Real Ham Bone For Dogs

August 2017: A state judge granted final approval of the settlement.

April 2017: A state judge preliminarily approved a settlement of a false advertising class-action lawsuit against Dynamic Pet Products. The complaint alleges that the company deceptively markets The Real Ham Bone For Dogs as being appropriate and safe for dogs when, according to plaintiffs, the product is “extremely hazardous” when chewed by dogs because it splits into shards that cause severe internal injuries and contains bacterial toxins that cause illness and death.

The settlement agreement provides class members with a maximum of $2,500 for each claim of pet injury or death resulting in veterinary expenses (with a cap of $50,000 per year). Class members may also receive a $3 refund for each product purchased (for up to 10 bones with proof of purchase, or up to four bones without proof of purchase). In addition, the company agreed to stop manufacturing or selling pig bone products for dogs until they are reformulated to be “more durable than an uncooked bone” or the company has insurance coverage to compensate owners of pets who have been killed or injured from consuming the bones.

A final fairness hearing is scheduled for August 3, 2017. For more information, go to https://www.realhambonesettlement.com/. (Taylor et al v. Dynamic Pet Products, LLC et al, Case No. 1616-CV11531, Circuit Court of Jackson County, Missouri at Independence)
