Case Name

In re: Processed Egg Products Antitrust Litigation,
Case No. 2:08-md-02002
District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania

Case Summary

Plaintiffs allege that Defendants, certain Producers of Shell Eggs and Egg Products, conspired to decrease the supply of eggs. Plaintiffs allege that this supply conspiracy limited, fixed, raised, stabilized, or maintained the price of eggs, which caused direct purchasers to pay more for eggs than they would have otherwise paid. The term “eggs” refers to both Shell Eggs and Egg Products, which are eggs removed from their shells for further processing into a dried, frozen, or liquid form. This lawsuit alleges injuries to direct egg purchasers only, that is, entities or individuals who bought eggs directly from egg Producers. Plaintiffs represent both themselves (the named Plaintiffs) and the entire Class of direct egg purchasers across the United States. The Defendants deny all of Plaintiffs’ allegations.

    So, again…. who keeps receipts? NO ONE. (Not smiling)

    ADMIN – Hi Patricia,

    I keep receipts, but don’t worry about this one unless you own a grocery store.

  2. Darrel Mulcahy says:

    I purchased the eggs on a weekly basis when I was living out west.

    ADMIN – Hi Darrel,

    Good for you but this is for direct purchasers. A direct purchaser is a supermarket or store that buys directly from the producer.

  3. Daniel Bain says:

    Interesting that this goes to the supermarket yet the cost is passed on to the CUSTOMER….
