What is the Pork Products Class Action?

A $75 Million class action settlement has been agreed upon and approved over price-fixing of pork products. The original open class action lawsuit alleges that indirect purchasers of pork products, such as seaboard foods and triumph foods, had paid higher prices as the result of price fixing. The details of the filed class action lawsuit allege that JBS USA Food Company, and their co-conspirator defedendats combined efforts in order to fix prices of certain pork products starting from at least January 1, 2009, costing average consumers millions of dollars.

The class action lawsuit made assertions that it was the intent and explicit expected result that increased products would pour money into the coffers of certain pork producers and marketers, and their affiliates. The lawsuit alleged that these monopolistic activities are in direct contradiction to federal and state antitrust laws that aim to protect consumers.

Some of the alleged co-conspirators in the pork class action complaint are producers of pork products, in addition to a company called Agri Stats, Inc. Some of the companies involved in the pork class action are:

JBS USA Food Company,
JBS USA Food Company Holdings,
Clemens Food Group, LLC,
The Clemens Family Corporation,
Hormel Foods Corporation,
Seaboard Foods LLC,
Smithfield Foods, Inc.,
Triumph Foods, LLC,
Tyson Foods, Inc.,
Tyson Prepared Foods, Inc.,
Tyson Fresh Meats, Inc.,
• Agri Stats, Inc.
