Attention restaurant owners or other businesses that purchased Broiler Chicken
It is hard enough to keep food costs under control, but you might be surprised to learn that you have been over-paying for chicken because of an illegal conspiracy to fix and raise chicken prices. But for thousands of restaurants, schools, nursing homes and other businesses, this kind of illegal pricing activity may have been going on since at least 2008.
According to recently filed class action complaints, a conspiracy dating back to 2008 to raise the price of Broiler Chickens is alleged to have taken place, and businesses in the states listed below may have been affected.
