Nagel Rice Files Class Action Lawsuit Against Bayer and Elanco Regarding Seresto® Flea and Tick Collars

Seresto® Flea and Tick Collars developed by Bayer and now sold by Elanco, works by releasing small amounts of pesticide onto the animal for months at a time. The pesticide is supposed to kill fleas, ticks and other pests but be safe for cats and dogs. However, since these flea and tick collars were introduced in 2012, the EPA has received incident reports of at least 1,698 related pet deaths. Overall, through June 2020, the agency has received more than 75,000 incident reports related to the collars, including nearly 1,000 involving human harm.  In March 2021, the Subcommittee on Economic and Consumer Policy of the United States House of Representatives requested that Elanco Animal Health Inc. “immediately institute a temporary recall of all Seresto Flea and Tick Collars, following reports that the collars may have killed thousands of pets and may have caused injuries to many more pets as well as humans.” That has not occurred and the Seresto® Flea and Tick Collars continue to be sold, without adequate warning of a defect that could cause severe injury or death to pets.
