What is the Chicken Prices Settlement About?
Amid food inflation and food prices skyrocketing for households all over the United States, especially for poultry and eggs, a $181 Million chicken class action lawsuit settlement has been agreed which involves residents of certain states in the U.S. who purchased chicken in the last 11 years.
If you purchased any chicken or chicken products from January 1, 2009 through December 31, 2020 you can be eligible to receive a cash payout from a collection of chicken and broiler chicken lawsuits, resulting in class action lawsuits totaling a $181 million settlement fund to be distributed. The claim deadline to file a legitimate qualifying settlement form has been extended to accommodate claimants and is pending as to a date. Keep checking this site to see when the established claim form deadline will be.
The full list of States that qualify are included below. The settlement involves multiple companies who have been accused of unfair price fixing monopoly and oligopoly business practices resulting from collusion to rip off the every day consumer. Companies involved in this that have agreed to settle are some of the biggest food producers in the United States: Fieldale, George's, Mar-Jac, Peco, Pilgrim's, and Tyson Foods.
