My vet bills are now over $7,000 for my german shepherd puppy.
At this time, I have been advised by my attorney, NOT to talk about actions I am taking against the company, since;
A) It is unusual
B) They'll be caught by surprise.
C) It will REALLY hurt and stagger them.
D) I will create a website, once we have "completed our task" to urge others to follow e-x-a-c-t-l-y- what I did.
--As far as the so called "gag order":
-The "gag order" applies ONLY to people involved in the Class Action Suit already filed in Federal Court in New Jersey, near where Menu is located. But, it is NOT a total "gag order" as Menu Pet Foods claims.
I have obtained the court transcripts and the actual order and it SPECIFICALLY says, Menu (et al) are barred from talking to PLAINTIFFS in the suit already filed.
However, Menu CAN talk to those people, thru their attorneys. (There is no gag order)
So when Menu "claims" they cannot talk to customers, they are lying.
They CAN talk to ANYONE who is NOT a plaintiff in the ALREADY FILED case in Federal Court in New Jersey.
If you are not in that case, they CAN talk to you.
If you ARE in that case, they CAN talk to you, but ONLY thru your attorney.
In other words, Menu, which took actions to force the judge to issue the "gag order" now is using the gag order to shield themselves from talking to ANYONE.
This is akln to an arsonist, who burned down his own house, asking for mercy from the court because he is homeless.
Finally, it should be noted that Menu, has "set aside" $ 40-million for payments to pet owners.
And finally, it must be remembered that the chairman of Menu is under federal investigation in Canada, for SELLING 300,000 shares of Menu Stock, BEORE the recall was announced and AFTER Menu was informed of problems.
A classic example of insider trading of Menu Food stock.
At the time he sold his shares, Menu was trading at around $15.00 (Fifteen-Dollars)
Now it is trading for less than $4.00 (Four-Dollars)
I fully expect that all the folks involved in killing and/or making our pets sick, will pay the full consequences of their actions.
Remember: Never, Ever, P*ss Off a Pet Person.
