Anyone who purchased fresh or frozen raw chicken (excluding meat marketed as halal, kosher, free-range, or organic) within several states is eligible. Those states include 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, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah, and Wisconsin. The law firm representing the plaintiff’s posted notice of the settlement Friday with approval from United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois. But, the settlements need final approval by the court at a hearing on Dec. 20, 2021 before any money is paid. How much money should you expect?
Prosecutors in the Broiler Chicken Antitrust Litigation allege that several corporations conspired to stabilize the price and supply of chicken, a violation of federal and state consumer antitrust laws. ST. LOUIS (KTVI) – Did you buy chicken from 2009 through 2020? Then you may be eligible for a payment from a class action settlement for $181 million. The defendants include Fieldale Farms Corporation, George’s, Mar-Jac Poultry, Peco Foods, Pilgrim’s Pride, and Tyson Foods.

“Co-Lead Counsel will seek attorneys’ fees of no more than 33.3% of the Settlement Fund or $60,273,000, and the total amount of costs sought will be no more than $8.75 million. Co-Lead Counsel will also request service awards of up to $2,000 for each of the Class Representatives.” Everything left after legal fees will be distributed to members of the settlement class. While the per-consumer payout isn’t yet known, we do know how much the class action settlement lawyers will get:
As far as the payouts involved, 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 if the settlements are approved. That figure is still to be determined, depending on how many claimants sign on and the settlement total being finalized.
