News on June 3, 2020 revealed that a federal grand jury in the U.S. District Court in Denver, Colorado had indicted Pilgrim's Chief Executive Officer, Jayson Penn, and three other executives for price fixing and rigging bids in the chicken industry.

Then, on June 14, 2020, Pilgrim's Pride Corporation announced that Mr. Penn had begun a leave of absence "to focus on his defense of the recently disclosed indictment against him, to which he has pleaded not guilty." Despite the precipitous drop in Pilgrim's stock price drop following news of the indictment, Mr. Penn will be paid during his leave.
