Violation Tracker Individual Record
Hoffman-La Roche Inc. and Roche Vitamins Inc.; BASF Corporation; Aventis Animal Nutrition S.A., formerly Rhone-Poulenc Animal Nutrition S.A.; Takeda Chemical Industries, Ltd.; Eisai Co., Ltd.; and Daiichi Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd. agreed to jointly pay $667,000 in settlement of allegations they enaged in price fixing of vitamins. The Commonwealth of Massachusetts did not participate in the multistate settlement in October 2000 and instead made claims for antitrust damages under the Massachusetts Consumer Protection Act. The announcement did not indicate how much each company would pay. Here we assume the amount was divided equally among them.
