On June 23, 2011, the DOJ announced a settlement with George's, Inc, a chicken processor, that requires the company to make capital improvements to the Harrisonburg, Va. chicken processing plant it acquired from Tyson's Foods to enhance the company's ability to increase local poultry production. DOJ had challenged the transaction—which was not reportable under the premerger notification requirements of the Hart-Scott-Rodino Act—alleging that the acquisition eliminated substantial competition between the two companies for the procurement of services of chicken growers in the Shenandoah Valley area. This was the latest in a series of challenges to consummated mergers by federal antitrust agencies, and the second such challenge in the agriculture sector since January 2010.
