    Can persons residing in california, submit a claim. The reason being, my wife and I noticed how the price of chicken has increased over the years, and we shop at the military commissary; and were quite surprised at the prices increasing often.

      Unfortunately, no, lol. Here is an excerpt from USAToday:

      „To be eligible to receive money, you need to have purchased fresh or frozen raw chicken between January 2009 and Dec. 31, 2020, and submit a claim form at Overchargedforchicken.com. You also need to be a resident of one of 24 states or Washington D.C. (See list of states below.)”

      I suppose you could fib, but is it really worth it to try collecting the one or two dollar payout that claimants will receive sometime in 2023? And then there’s the exchange rate to convert to pounds …. hahaha

    According to www.broilerchickenantitrustlitigation.com, case#16-cv-08637, the deadline to file a claim for this class action lawsuit was May 17, 2021. It also indicates that no additional claims will be accepted after that date. Therefore, I have my suspicions about the https://www.overchargedforchicken.com/ website and its legitimacy. The dates/actions listed do not correspond to the dates/actions on the original website. Why would there be two different websites regarding this lawsuit, both with differing information available? I'd be careful giving your information to that second website. Seems very sketchy to me.

      I feel that it may be a scam as if you try to complete and submit a claim it does not work, you are now allowed to get to the Certification page. I tried on different browsers. If this was legit, this lawsuit is huge and they would actually have a site that would work to submit a claim. I'd wait to hear more info.

      USA Today states the deadline's 12-31-22, with purchase dates between 1-2009 & 12-31-20- so MAYBE it isn't scamacious: https://www.usatoday.com/story/money/food/2021/09/22/overcharged-for-chicken-scam-chicken-class-action-lawsuit-settlement/5810320001/
