Tyson Foods Settles Consumer Class Action

This is a settlement for the lawsuit.

Baltimore, MD: A $5 million settlement in the consumer class action brought against Tyson Foods Inc, was approved Tuesday in Baltimore.

The suit was brought over Tyson's controversial advertising campaign which stated that its chickens were "Raised Without Antibiotics." According to media reports, Tyson's chicken feed contains ionophores, which are considered antibiotics by the US Department of Agriculture.

The class consists of people who bought Tyson chicken, either fresh or frozen, whole or breaded pieces, Cornish hens or deli, between specified dates in 2007 and 2009. Qualified consumers could receive up to $50 per person from the settlement.
