Purina PetCare Company (“Nestlé Purina”) and Blue Buffalo Company, Ltd. (“Blue Buffalo”) announced on November 3 that they reached a mutually agreeable settlement of the lawsuits pending between them. The terms of the settlement are confidential.
As a result of the settlement agreement, Blue Buffalo and Nestlé Purina have asked the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Missouri to dismiss the claims between the two parties and Purina’s agencies with prejudice. Blue Buffalo will continue to prosecute its legal claims against the remaining parties.
“Purina filed suit in 2014, claiming that tests showed Blue Buffalo used chicken byproducts in some food. Blue Buffalo denied the claim and filed a countersuit that accused Purina of false advertising and unfair competition practices,” according to the Associated Press via Philly.com.
