A dog chews a rawhide bone.TCA viewers report receiving settlement checks in the Real Ham Bone and Global Tel Link class action lawsuits.

Real Ham Bone Class Action Settlement

According to reports on the Top Class Action Facebook page, Class Members in the Real Ham Bone class action settlement have received checks worth as much as $2,500.

Consumers accused the makers of the Real Ham Bone for Dogs of making products dangerous for their pets. According to the class action lawsuit, the dog treats were made from slaughterhouse waste and contained toxins.

Further, the treats, after being chewed by dogs, could create “needle-like shards,” the plaintiffs claimed. If ingested, the shards could puncture pets’ intestinal tracts or cause other internal injuries.


The maker of the Real Ham Bone, Dynamic Pet Products, agreed to settle the class action lawsuit in 2017. The company agreed to reimburse Class Members for vet bills up to $2,500 caused by injuries linked to the Real Ham Bone. Additionally, the company agreed to pay Class Members $3 per Real Ham Bone product they purchased, for up to four products without proof of purchase and for up to 30 with proof.

Class Members included anyone who purchased the Real Ham Bone product or who sustained a pet injury/property damage due to the dog treat between Jan. 1, 2011 and May 12, 2017

The deadline to file a claim in the Real Ham Bone class action settlement was Sept. 9, 2017.

The Class Members in the Real Ham Bone class action settlement are represented by Shank & Moore LLC.

The Real Ham Bone Class Action Lawsuit is Michael Taylor, et al. v. Dynamic Pet Products LLC, et al., Case No. 1616-CV11531, in the Circuit Court of Jackson County, Missouri at Independence.

Global Tel Link Class Action Settlement

According to the TCA Facebook page, Class Members in the Global Tel Link class action settlement have received checks for as much as $178.

The Global Tel Link class action lawsuit alleged that the company, which operates pay phones in correctional facilities, used an automatic dialing system in violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act.

According to the complaint, Global Tel Link was attempting to collect billing information for collect calls placed from facilities, but did not obtain permission to autodial Class Members.


Global Tel Link agreed to pay $8.8 million to end the class action lawsuit. Under the terms of the settlement agreement, Class Members could claim approximately $60 for calls they received from Global Tel Link between Dec. 5, 2010 and April 7, 2017.
