Class Action Settlement for Chicken Products

Class Action Settlement for Chicken Products

Several major chicken producers such as Tyson, Fieldale, George’s, Mar-Jac, Peco and Pilgrim’s, have reached a settlement over allegations that they conspired to restrict supply and fixed prices.

End-User Consumer Plaintiffs have reached a settlements with the Settling Defendants, but the End-User Consumers’ case is proceeding against other defendants. Those other Non-Settling Defendants may be subject to separate settlements, judgments, or class certification orders.

Who is Eligible

The Court decided that, for settlement purposes, members of the Settlement Class are defined as:

All persons and entities who indirectly purchased fresh or frozen raw chicken, but excluding chicken that is marketed as halal, kosher, free range, or organic) from Defendants or alleged co-conspirators for personal consumption, where the person or entity purchased in California, District of Columbia, Florida, Hawaii, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, Oregon, Rhode Island (after July 15, 2013), South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah, and Wisconsin from January 1, 2009 (except for Rhode Island, which is from July 15, 2013), to July 31, 2019.

The Pilgrim’s Settlement covers claims for the period of January 1, 2009 to December 31, 2020. You are eligible to recover money if you purchased whole chicken, chicken breasts, or wings while a resident of one of the following states: California, District of Columbia, Florida, Hawaii, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, Oregon, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah, and Wisconsin.

How Much Do Consumers Get?

If the settlements are approved, Tyson will pay $99,000,000, Pilgrim’s will pay $75,500,000, George’s will pay $1,900,000, Peco will pay $1,900,000, Fieldale will pay $1,700,000, and Mar-Jac will pay $1,000,000.

But it is not clear how much each class member will receive.
