Yet another class action has been filed in federal court in Newark, New Jersey against a manufacturer of spot-on flea and tick products.

FidoPharm, which makes PetArmor, has been added to the list of companies being sued. PetArmor was launched a year ago and is described by the manufacturer as containing the same active ingredients as Frontline, a well known veterinarian recommended product.

Over the past four years, more than 75,000 complaints have been made to the EPA regarding spot-on flea and tick products. The plaintiffs of the class actions allege that the pesticides in spot-on products cause death, paralysis, seizures and skin lesions and that these adverse affects are not stated in the advertising or marketing.
