An investigation has revealed that since 2008, major food corporations have illegally increased the price of chicken, forcing millions of U.S. consumers to pay artificially high prices. If you purchased broiler chicken (also known as spring chicken) from any of the suppliers listed below, you may be entitled to your money back:
Koch Foods, Tyson, Pilgrim's Pride, Perdue, Sanderson Farms, Wayne Farms, Mountaire Farms, Peco Foods, Foster Farms, House of Raeford Farms, Simmons Foods, Fieldale Farms, George's, O.K. Foods, Claxton Poultry, Harrison Poultry, Mar-Jac Poultry, Agri Stats.
ABOUT THE CONSPIRACY
This litigation alleges that between 2008 and at least 2016, chicken producers such as Tyson, Perdue and others colluded to knowingly reduce chicken production to artificially inflate prices by nearly 50 percent. The chicken producers engaged in a conspiracy, that the Court has found to be plausible, to share detailed pricing and production information with each other with the intent to increase the price paid by U.S. consumers.
Broiler chickens account for 98 percent of all chicken meat sold in the United States, and the companies involved control 90 percent of the market. Hagens Berman believes that this is a classic conspiracy meant to extract extra profits from hard working Americans.
YOUR CONSUMER RIGHTS
The lawsuit seeks reimbursement for the fraudulent price increases pushed onto consumers. Hagens Berman believes that those who unknowingly paid high prices for chicken deserve compensation for the greed and wrongdoing of these major food corporations.
