The lawsuit was filed by restaurants and caterers.
Smithfield earlier paid $83 million to settle a lawsuit filed by hog farmers.
Smithfield denied any wrongdoing and said settling for $52 million was better than fighting a court battle.
JBS has also settled with restaurants and caterers for $12.75 million.
I guess the tens of millions are just another tax-deductible expense.
Other pork processors remain involved in the lawsuit, including Hormel, Tyson Foods, Seaboard Foods and Triumph Foods, along with Agri Stats.
