Sparboe Farms has reached an agreement with the Minnesota Attorney General’s office to settle a lawsuit over price gouging. The Minnesota-based egg producer will donate more than one-million eggs to state nonprofit groups to address hunger and food insecurity.

Under a state executive order, Minnesota consumers were protected from COVID-related profiteering from March of 2020-to-July of 2021.
