A court will have to approve the settlement later this year, but complaints are already being received from eligible consumers.

The lawsuit specifies that chickens marketed as halal, kosher, free range or organic are not eligible for class action suits.
This applies to chickens “from any of the above brands or their alleged conspirators for personal use” in the following states during that time: California, District of Columbia, Florida, Hawaii, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, Missouri Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, Oregon, Rhode Island (after July 15, 201 after), South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah and Wisconsin.
