Chicken industry officials brace for retrial in price-fixing case

Executives who worked for some of America’s largest chicken farmers are set to stand trial for a second time starting Tuesday as they fight Justice Department charges that they conspired to fix prices.

The government’s case against the 10 former poultry executives previously ended in a mistrial in December after jurors failed to reach consensus on a verdict after days of deliberation. Prosecutors decided to pursue a new trial, which is expected to last 22 days in federal court in Colorado.
