KANSAS CITY, MO. — The maker of Greenies, one of the nation's best-selling dog treats, settled a class-action lawsuit by pet owners who claimed the teeth-cleaning product injured or killed their dogs.
U.S. District Judge Gary Fenner on Monday agreed with a joint request to dismiss the case. Terms were confidential.
Alan Sash, who represented 10 dog owners against Kansas City-based manufacturer S&M NuTec, said the case was settled.
An attorney for S&M NuTec, which was acquired last year by McLean, Va.-based candy conglomerate Mars Inc., didn't immediately return a phone call.
