Boneless Chicken Lawsuit Against Pilgrim’s Pride Corp. to Proceed


A federal judge in Washington State ruled that a case alleging mislabeling of chicken burgers could proceed.  At issue is the lawsuit filed by Innovative Solutions International alleging that chicken burgers sold to Trader Joe’s contained bones and cartilage.


Pilgrim’s Pride had petitioned the U.S. District Court to dismiss the lawsuit alleging breach of contract, negligence, misrepresentation and violation of the Consumer Protection Act of Washington State.


Following confirmation of bone fragments in a sample of raw product, Innovative recalled a batch of chili lime chicken burgers during November 2021. In addition purchase of the product by Trader Joe’s ceased resulting in losses to the processor.
