Another price-fixing lawsuit against four major beef packers

Yet another price-fixing lawsuit against major meat packers. This one targets Cargill, JBS, Tyson, and National Beef Packing Co.

A group of small food distributors says that the country’s four largest processors, who control more than 80 percent of the U.S. cattle supply, colluded to inflate prices for purchases from 2015 to 2021.
This followed several other suits resulting in tens of millions of dollars in settlements.

The new case is filed with the same court that is hosting litigation accusing major chicken processors of the same thing.
