Furniture makers claim price-fixing on foam products

TUPELO – Five North Mississippi furniture manufacturers claim they’ve suffered financial losses from an alleged price-fixing conspiracy.

They’ve filed a lawsuit in U.S. District Court, and within it say that the FBI raided the offices of some of the 11 defendants in July.

The raids, they claim, were in connection with a “multi-jurisdiction investigation into the pricing practices of polyurethane foam products.”
