Blue Buffalo is involved in a class action lawsuit regarding the contamination of lead in some of their products. This lawsuit alleges that Blue Buffalo knew about the unsafe levels of lead in their food, but disregarded the issue and continued to sell contaminated products. Lead is a classified carcinogen, meaning that it can potentially lead to cancer. It is also linked to chronic poisoning, development and reproductive disorders, and injuries to the nervous system. Lead can build up in dogs’ bodies and as it accumulates over time, dogs can become sick.
Some Blue Buffalo’s foods were found to have extremely unsafe levels of lead. As a basis of comparison, the acceptable levels of lead in a human bottle of water is 5ppb (parts per billion).
