Tennessee Attorney General Jonathan Skrmetti announced a $44.5 million settlement with K-VA-T Food Stores, commonly known as Food City in relation to the chain’s “opioid-related misconduct.”

The settlement was announced on Thursday just after 12:00 p.m. According to the AG’s Office, most of the settlement will go to Tennessee’s Opioid Abatement Fund to support local efforts addressing the opioid epidemic.

In addition to the monetary settlement, Food City also agreed to ensure future compliance by providing additional training to pharmacy staff, updating the prescription-validation process and monitoring and reporting data related to suspicious activity. Food City also agreed to provide dedicated employment opportunities for Tennesseans recovering from opioid addiction.
