Blue Buffalo—May 19th, 2015 Legal Update

May 19, 2015

Pet Parents,

Given all the misinformation out there, we would like to give you a quick update on the legal front. As we had informed you on May 9th, today we formally brought claims of breach of contract, fraud and unjust enrichment against the parties responsible for the intentional mislabeling of certain ingredients that were shipped to us and other well-known pet food brands through May 2014.

Separately, we informed the court in the case involving consumers’ claims in this matter that we would also name the same parties as defendants in that case, so they can be held fully accountable for their actions.

For those interested in reading the court documents, we have posted our amended answer to Nestlé Purina’s lawsuit below, which includes our counterclaims against Nestlé Purina and its PR agencies, as well as our new claims against the suppliers of mislabeled ingredients.

We encourage all of you who are interested to read our lawsuit and learn more about Nestlé Purina’s smear campaign attacking our integrity, and the supplier fraud that impacted the industry until May of last year.

Yours sincerely,

Blue Buffalo
