Bumble Bee, US Foods and Bumble Bee, Sysco settle tuna price-fixing lawsuit

February 15, 2019 from undercurrent news February 26, 2019 and Undercurrent News
Bumble Bee Foods has separately settled tuna price fixing lawsuits by Sysco Corp and US Foods.
"This comes after StarKist Co. -- which, like Bumble Bee, has agreed to plead guilty to price-fixing in the Department of Justice (DOJ) criminal probe of the sector -- entered into a settlement agreement with Walmart to resolve price-fixing claims at the end of January. "
"ivil lawsuits from dozens of wholesalers, retailers and individuals across the US allege that the plaintiffs were overcharged by a long-running price-fixing conspiracy involving Thai Union Group's Tri-Union-Seafoods, owner of the Chicken of the Sea brand, Bumble Bee and StarKist. "
"The civil lawsuits began in 2015 amid an investigation into alleged price-fixing in the US tuna sector that spun out of the department's antitrust review of Thai Union's attempt to acquire Bumble Bee."
