Water dogs are a popular pet food item, with many having been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for use in humans.
But now, an animal welfare group is claiming that some of the pet food ingredients are not safe for dogs.
In a lawsuit filed last week, the Center for Companion Animal Welfare claims that the pet water dog brand Pet Food Safety and Education (PFSE) failed to adequately warn consumers of the potential risks posed by certain ingredients used in its popular pet water filter.
According to the group, Pet FoodSafety and Education is not only selling the products to its customers, but also to the public.
The group alleges that Pet Foodsafety and Education uses a false label for the pet filter product, labeling it as a ‘water filter’ and ‘water filtration device.’
According to PFSE, the filter can be used for cleaning the filtrations system, which can be found on most Pet Foodsafe products.
However, the complaint claims that Pet Safety and Engineering has not been following standard industry guidelines for water filtrating devices.
In fact, according to the complaint, PFSe is using false and misleading labeling to falsely imply that its pet water filters are more than just filters, that the filters are safe to use and that the filter has a ‘high water safety rating’ that means it can be safely used for filtrates.
The complaint also claims that PFS E is using misleading language to claim that the filtrate does not pose a risk to pets or to humans.
For example, the company’s website claims that “pet food safety is an important issue for pet owners, especially for those who care for dogs or cats.”
The complaint continues, “PFS E claims that pet food safety in general, and pet water filters specifically, is a ‘top priority for Pet Food, Inc.’
Pet Food safety is a critical issue for all pet owners and pet owners should have their pet’s safety and well-being at heart.”
The case was filed in federal court in California on May 14, and it was referred to the Department of Justice’s civil rights division.
