Good news! A class-action lawsuit has been filed in California against Radio Systems, maker of shock collar products. The story has been picked up by Bloomberg Law and several other sites.
Excerpt from the filing:
“This is a consumer class action arising out of misrepresentations and omissions by Radio Systems in connection with its manufacture, sale, marketing, and advertising of shock collar products under the brand name PetSafe® (the “Shock Collar Products”). Shock Collar Products are devices that deliver electric shocks to household pets via a collar worn around the pets’ necks. In an effort to extract money from unsuspecting consumers concerned over the well-being of their pets, Radio Systems manufactures, markets, distributes, and sells dozens of Shock Collar Products through its websites and nationwide retailers’ physical stores and websites, while falsely claiming that the Shock Collar Products are ‘safe’ and ‘harmless’ tools for preventing unwanted behaviors.”
