EDITOR’S NOTE: This content has been sponsored and edited for clarity in collaboration with the sponsor.

Consumers who purchased certain Diamond Pet Foods products may be eligible to claim up to $5 without proof of purchase — or up to $100 with proof of purchase — thanks to a class action settlement agreement.

The Class is made up of anyone living in the United States or any of its territories, such as Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Guam, American Samoa, the Northern Mariana Islands, and who purchased one or more qualifying Diamond Pet Foods products in the United States or U.S. territories, between March 12, 2017, and May 3, 2021.

A class action lawsuit claimed the defendant, Schell & Kampeter Inc., doing business as Diamond Pet Foods, misleadingly represented and advertised the products as being grain free, when lab tests allegedly detected grain among the products’ ingredients.

Diamond Pet Foods products are sold at retailers throughout the United States, including Petco, Tractor Supply Co., Chewy.com, Amazon, and others.

The defendants have denied all allegations of wrongdoing, and the Court has not ruled in favor of either party. Both parties believe the settlement to be in the Class’ best interest.

Class Members who submit proof of purchase with their valid claim will receive $10 for each product, up to a maximum of $100 per household.

Those without proof of purchase may still make a claim; these claimants will receive a single $5 payment per household.

A final hearing is set for Aug. 20, 2021. 

Anyone who wishes to request to be excluded from or to object to the settlement must do so by July 30, 2021.

The claim form deadline is Oct. 4, 2021.

Who’s Eligible

Anyone living in the United States or any of its territories, such as Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Guam, American Samoa, the Northern Mariana Islands, and who purchased one or more qualifying Diamond Pet Foods products in the United States or U.S. territories, between March 12, 2017, and May 3, 2021.

Potential Award

Up to $100.

  • Class Members who submit proof of purchase with their valid claim will receive $10 for each product, up to a maximum of $100 per household.
  • Those without proof of purchase may still make a claim; these claimants will receive a single $5 payment per household.
Proof of Purchase

Receipts, copies of receipts, or other documentation that shows the Class Member’s purchase of the covered products after March 12, 2017, and before May 3, 2021.

    This is a shame I use this product once for my dog and she did not like it didn’t use very much have been through it out but still I used it for a small amount of time $5 come on and if you have the receipt you can get $100 what a crying shame this is outrageous to say the least our fur babies suffer from these companies that state that they are top quality and then like so many other issues in the world you get little or no compensation for your pain and suffering. Thank goodness she did not take to this food as it probably saved her life

    I’m filling this out but think we deserve more

  • David Bruce Feldman July 17, 2021

    Grain Free Dog Food is responsible for heart failure in almost all breeds of dogs. My Max, a Great Dane is dying, he had one heart attack, and now I have to pay to have his chest drained every 3 weeks, he is only 5@1/2 years old and will not make it much longer…I am heartbroken and I am running out of money because I want to keep him alive since he is not suffering as of yet..

    Please ADD ME. I purchased two bags after rescuing our 6 yr old Chihuahua. The SPCA told us he was a very picky eater and thought I should try a grain free type of food. It took him a while to get through the first bag and I noticed he seemed to have lost weight. I thought he was just being “picky” and I bought a 2nd bag. That went into the trash and he became a great eater with his new food. In fact, at his last annual exam, our Vet said he was getting a bit too “Fluffy”. ADD ME.
