Tyson Settles Consumer Class Action For $5 Million

Chicken-processing giant Tyson Foods Inc. has settled a consumer class action
brought over its controversial Raised Without Antibiotics advertising

Under the agreement filed Tuesday night in U.S. District Court in Baltimore,
individual consumers will receive as much as $50 each. The cost to Tyson is $5
million, with $600,000 of that amount set aside to cover administrative costs.

An attorney for the class called the agreement a meaningful settlement that has
real value and not just a 50-cent-off coupon placed in the Sunday paper.
