Minnesota, N. Carolina, Tennessee, and California join federal government’s Agri Stats lawsuit

A lawsuit against a meat industry information services company continues with more states joining in.

Minnesota, North Carolina, Tennessee, and California are now part of the federal government’s case against Agri Stats. The suit accuses the company of organizing and managing anti-competitive information exchanges among broiler, pork, and turkey processors.

The state of Minnesota says that it got on board since Hormel, located in the “Gopher State,” is an Agri Stats customer.
Agri Stats denies the allegations.
