Tyson has to pay millions to Washington in price-fixing suit

Tyson Foods, the largest chicken producer in the nation, will pay more than $10 million as part of the lawsuit over price-fixing on chicken products, according to Washington state Attorney General, Bob Ferguson.

It marks the largest resolution in his lawsuit against 19 broiler chicken producers.

He accused Tyson and 18 other chicken producers of driving up chicken prices since 2008, which resulted in consumers overpaying by millions of dollars.

Alaska and New Mexico have similar cases against national chicken producers.
