If You Bought the Real Ham Bone For Dogs Your Rights May Be Affected and You May Be Eligible for Settlement Benefits

A proposed Settlement has been reached in a class action lawsuit claiming that Dynamic Pet Products, LLC and Frick’s Meat Products, Inc. (“Defendants”) violated Missouri law regarding the marketing and sale of the Real Ham Bone For Dogs product (see FAQ 2). Defendants deny that they did anything wrong but, without admitting any liability, have decided to settle the action.
