The lawsuit, filed by Frank Lucido, claims that pet owners have submitted over 3,000 complaints about Purina Beneful’s dry dog food, saying that is it hurting, and even killing, some of their dogs.

The suit includes Purina Beneful Health Weight, Purina Beneful Original, Purina Beneful, Incredibites and Purina Beneful for Puppies among other variations.
