For millions of pet owners across the country, their pets are a beloved part of their families. That is why news that Seresto flea collars may be harming or even killing the pets they are meant to protect is so distressing. Even worse, they may be making people who interact with pets wearing these collars sick, as well.
Consumers rely on companies like Seresto to provide safe products for their pets, and to properly disclose the reasonable risks of using those products. However, despite the EPA receiving more than 75,000 incident reports related to Seresto’s flea collars — including almost 1,700 reports of pet deaths and nearly 1,000 involving harm to humans — the company continues to market and sell these collars. Studies have indicated that two of the pesticides used in Seresto’s flea collars, imidacloprid and flumethrin, are more potent and thus potentially dangerous when used together, as they are in these products.
Attorneys at Finkelstein, Blankinship, Frei-Pearson & Garber, LLP have successfully recovered millions of dollars on behalf of victims of false advertising and harmful and defective products. We are currently investigating this matter. If you have purchased Seresto flea collars and your pet has had a health incident, please contact us to discuss your legal options.
