McDonald's joins litigation alleging price-fixing by chicken producers

Restaurant Business:

The charges argue that these companies used a price information service between 2008 and 2019 that enabled them to cut production of broilers and fix their prices. The allegations have led to charges against at least 10 executives and both Tyson and Pilgrim’s have agreed to make payments to settle the allegations.

(They threatened to join the litigation a few months ago.)
