People whose pets got sick or died as a result of melamine adulteration of pet foods in 2007 are entitled to compensation. The U.S. courts approved the $24 million settlement on November 17. Now, the Canadian courts also have approved the settlement. The $24 million is in addition to the $8 million already paid out. Pet owners who have not yet filed claims can still do so by writing to: In re Pet Food Products Liability Litigation, Claims Administrator, c/o Heffler, Radetich & Saitta LLP, P.O. Box 890, Philadelphia, PA 19105-0890. Tel: 1-800-392-7785. Website: www.petfoodsettlement.com.
Happy Thanksgiving holiday!
