An Indiana couple has filed suit against Wal-Mart and Hartz Mountain Corporation.
The suit was filed five months after one of the listed plaintiffs, Mr. David Wilgus, stated in a comment posted on HartzVictims.org he was forced to euthanize his 6-year-old Husky, two days after applying Hartz flea and tick drops to his dog. He and his partner also acquired an $800.00 veterinary bill.
Understandably outraged by the loss of his beloved pet and Wal-Mart’s failure to take any responsibility by upholding their satisfaction guarantee, Wilgus wrote on the back of his car windshield “Hartz and Wal-Mart Killed My Dog”.
We couldn’t agree more. We highly doubt this was Wal-Mart’s first time hearing complaints about Hartz and for Wal-Mart to dismiss this matter is negligent and unconscionable.
Broken Hartz wishes Mr. Wilgus and his partner the best. We offer any assistance we can provide in this matter.
We also thank them for taking the very important step of holding the distributor accountable. All too often these culpable middle-men skirt responsibility while raking in the profits.
The car windshield message is fantastic, but we thought Mr. Wilgus and our constituents may also want to print and (warning: mature content) distribute this flyer. We realize his pet was a dog, but we had already created the graphic for a different incident and think the kitten gets the point across regardless.
Would you like us to personalize a protest flyer for you? We’d love to! Send us the details of your case and include the distributor, product name and EPA registration number, if possible. Let’s take these products off the shelves together.
