Justice Department Investigates Chicken Industry

The U.S. Justice Department has initiated a criminal investigation into allegations that top poultry processors, such as Tyson, Pilgrim’s Pride, Sanderson Farms, and Perdue Farms, conspired to keep prices artificially high. The investigation started after federal attorneys considered intervening in a lawsuit in which customers accused chicken processors, of illegally cooperating. The accusation is being denied by the processors. Allegations of price-fixing and collusion in the U.S. chicken industry surfaced in 2016 when chicken buyers filed a lawsuit alleging that poultry processors had worked together to curb meat supplies. @ https://www.wsj.com/articles/justice-department-investigates-chicken-industry-11561495088" rel="nofollow noopener noreferrer" target="_blank">https://www.wsj.com/articles/justice-department-investigates-chicken-industry-11561495088
