Is this true? Lawsuit against Champion Pet foods

Just saw this today, not sure if it has been shared already! Is this article true?:

https://truthaboutpetfood.com/lawsui...na-and-orijen/


Extract from the article:

The lawsuit claims Champion pet foods (Acana and Orijen) “contain levels of arsenic, mercury, lead, cadmium” “known to pose health risks to humans and animals, including dogs” and interestingly for a kibble pet food…the lawsuit claims the dry pet food contained “BISPHENOL A (“BPA”)”.

Yes, it's true. I believe the lawsuit is actually about deceptive advertising and intentionally misleading consumers.

Since you can't always believe what you read, did anyone hear about the claim of high lead amounts in some a big name dog food in 2017?
...'the law suit was filed due to evidence documenting the fact that several of Blue Buffalo’s dry dog foods contained toxic levels of lead...'
here is the link that was on fb. you can't always believe what you read!!

Are you saying this report is not true?

No, I hadn't heard about this recall in 2017 when the high lead levels were found.
I also don't want to post false info and I wondered if I just missed the recall.
All the recalls are very alarming.

So what did you mean you can't always believe what you read?

The article about the recall in 2017 was posted on Facebook by a person/source not familiar to me and I had not received any recall notice about it.

I simply wanted to share info on a possible recall that I read about.

Dear Fellow Pet Lovers,
The allegations contained within a Class Action Complaint that was brought against us on March 1st are meritless and based on misinterpretation of the data.
Let us assure you that our products are safe and that we systematically test our products at two third-party laboratories using the Official Methods of Analysis by Association of Analytical Communities (AOAC). While we plan to comprehensively refute the wide range of false allegations in a court of law at the appropriate date, in the interim we want you to be confident in the safety and quality of our products.
For more information, we urge you to read: ORIJEN and ACANA Foods in Comparison to Pet Food Safety Standards, here: http://bit.ly/2HMvJiy
As you know, our commitment to using fresh and raw meat and fish ingredients means that pets and Pet Lovers can count on Champion to provide safe, Biologically Appropriate™ nutrition. Much like the natural human food we consume, Champion Petfoods contains small traces of a range of naturally occurring elements. These so-called ‘heavy metals’ are found throughout the Earth’s environment, and the miniscule amounts of these substances found in Champion Petfoods are a safe and common component of both human and animal diets. Our Biologically Appropriate™ foods feature much higher levels of quality fresh and raw meat ingredients than conventional pet foods, including fish and seafood ingredients.
Please know that we are confident that we will prevail as the facts and evidence are presented to the court, and that these baseless claims will not deter us from our mission of delivering award-winning Biologically Appropriate™ foods. The legal complaint has no bearing whatsoever on the activities or operation of our business, and you will continue to enjoy the same high degree of professionalism and quality you have come to expect from Champion.
Thank you for your continued commitment to our company and our quality food products.
Champion Petfoods
