ricks food is back in the spotlight again.
This time, it’s because the company’s pet food brand has been sued by two California men over a claim that the company failed to warn them about the high levels of lead in the food.
The plaintiffs claim that ricks brand, Ricks andamp;amp;snacks, which was created in 1989, contained dangerously high levels (10.8 micrograms per 100 milliliters of water) of lead.
The lawsuit alleges that the lead was in the product before the company was sold to Ricks &s.
In a statement, a spokesperson for the Food and Drug Administration said that the agency is “aware of the situation and is working closely with our federal partners to investigate.”
The statement continued: “We are currently investigating the allegations that Ricks brand may have been contaminated with lead at a time when the FDA and the Food &.; Drug Administration were investigating whether Ricks’ product may have caused any health problems to individuals.
The FDA is conducting an investigation into the situation.
We cannot comment further at this time.”
In a letter to Rins Food Co., the attorneys for the plaintiffs said they are filing a claim in California Superior Court against the company for breach of contract, negligent misrepresentation and other violations of the Lanham Act.
They said that they are seeking compensatory and punitive damages, as well as an injunction against Ricks.
The lawsuit says that rickstax’s product “was not adequately tested for lead” and that it failed to disclose “that Ricks food was contaminated with high levels” of lead, which the lawsuit alleges resulted in “deaths and serious health problems.”
Ricks Food Co. did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
