The Zignature pet food class action lawsuit alleges third-party testing of the pet food products indicated some that were labeled as “grain free” or “chicken free” contained grain and chicken.

Pets Global denies any wrongdoing but agreed to a settlement in the Zignature pet food class action lawsuit to avoid the risk and expense of further litigation.

Class members who provide proof of purchase may be able to claim up to $10 per eligible product purchased during the class period and can make up to 10 claims, for a total of $100 per household.

Class members without proof of purchase may claim up to $5 for purchases of eligible Zignature pet food products they purchased during the class period.

In addition to providing cash benefits to eligible class members, the Zignature pet food settlement also requires Pets Global to audit all of the manufacturing plants at least yearly for five years after the settlement is approved to ensure the accuracy of the ingredients used in the pet food products.

Pets Global has also agreed to remove any and all “grain free” and “chicken free” representations from its products.

Oct. 31, 2022, is the deadline to object to or opt out of the Zignature class action settlement.

The final approval hearing will be held Nov. 21, 2022.

The deadline to file a claim in the Zignature pet food settlement is Dec. 21, 2022.
