Peanut farmers who sold raw, harvested “runner” peanuts to peanut-shelling companies.
What’s Going On?
A class action lawsuit has been filed alleging that two major peanut-shelling companies conspired to depress the price of runner peanuts, which caused farmers to be artificially underpaid for their crops. Attorneys working with ClassAction.org have now launched their own investigation into the allegations and want to speak to peanut farmers to learn more about the alleged conspiracy.
