Settlement Benefits

The settlement provides that consumers who purchased recalled dog food and did not already return it for a refund may receive money, provided the Class Member establishes that he or she purchased recalled Diamond Dog Food and did not return it.

Additionally, the settlement fund provides that Class Members who submitted a valid claim showing that their dog was injured or that they incurred a veterinary bill as a result of Diamond Dog Food will be entitled to payment for veterinary expenses. The settlement also provides that Diamond will pay Court awarded attorneys' fees, costs, and expenses incurred in this lawsuit.
