broiler chickenA new website has been established to inform Class Members of their rights under three broiler chicken class action settlements.

Three settlements have been reached, ending claims that chicken producers conspired to fix the price of broiler chickens. In total, the settlements reach $13.35 million.

While the website is live, it is not accepting claims yet. Top Class Actions will provide claim filing instructions as soon as they become available.

Meanwhile, viewers will receive an email notice when this article is updated with more information by using a free Top Class Actions account and clicking the “Follow Article” button at the top of the post.

The settlements benefit all people (including businesses and companies) who purchased broiler chickens directly from Peco, George’s, and Amick or their affiliates between Jan. 1, 2008 and Dec. 20, 2019.


Previously, Fieldale Farms Corporation settled out of the price-fixing class action lawsuit. Now, Peco, George’s, and Amick, who were also named as defendants, are following suit.

Of the $13.35 million settlement amount, Peco has agreed to pay the largest amount, at $5.15 million. George’s will pay $4.25 million and Amick will pay the least at $3.95 million. 

The website notes that the funds will not be distributed to Class Members at this time. Instead, the funds will be held so they can be combined with settlements or other funds that may be recovered in the future, as part of the broiler chicken class action lawsuit.

According to the website, Class Members will be notified of any future settlements that may be reached or of any future benefits that become available. Though no benefits are yet available, the website notes that consumers do have a few options at this time. They can request to receive notices of the pending class action by filling out this form. 

Class Members who take issue with the settlement can object by writing to the court and explaining their opinion about the problems with the settlement. Consumers who wish to do this must do so by March 9, 2020.


Those who wish to be excluded from the settlement can make a request for exclusion by March 9, 2020. Consumers who choose this option will receive no benefits from the settlement, but will retain their rights to pursue independent litigation concerning the chicken price-fixing class action settlement. 

Claim forms for benefits are not yet available, but consumers who do file a claim and receive benefits when they are able will waive their rights to pursue litigation against the companies. Class Members who do nothing will remain part of the settlement and will waive their rights to pursue litigation, but will not receive benefits.

Finally, consumers can attend a fairness hearing. If they wish to speak at the fairness hearing, they must notify the court by March 9, 2020.

Consumers in the broiler chicken class action lawsuit claimed that a number of companies conspired to fix and then raise the price of broiler chickens. According to the consumers, this action violated antitrust laws.

The website explains that broilers are chickens raised for meat, that are meant to be slaughtered before they are 13-weeks-old. According to the website, the chickens can be sold in a number of ways, including “fresh or frozen, raw or cooked, whole or in parts, or as a meat ingredient in a value added product.”

    I’ve never been able to quite figure out why people leave a comment that says “ADD ME” … How could that possibly do anything for you? You are still going to have to follow the settlement progress and then file online like you always do. What if you put Don’t Add Me, but then filed online anyhow?

    • Me Me May 6, 2020

      Whatever you write here has nothing to do with filing a claim, receiving a check
      or a denial letter.
      You have to fill out the form online, when they become available.

      The “add me” folks are really saying, “I’m stupid, that’s me! I don’t understand any of this yet I’ll type that anyway in hopes that some money comes my way, since I greatly lack any common sense, therefore the govt min wage I’m making isn’t enough, so to compensate from that I’m adding myself along with my close friends of the add me, gang, as we’re all about the same level of intelligence. I have faith that I’ll one day be added, the more add me requests I make, my chances get better. So never giving up. #determined #addmegang #were_smarter_than_we_look
