NO CLASS HAS YET BEEN CERTIFIED IN THE ABOVE ACTION. UNTIL A CLASS IS CERTIFIED, YOU ARE NOT REPRESENTED BY COUNSEL UNLESS YOU RETAIN ONE. YOU MAY CHOOSE TO DO NOTHING AT THIS POINT AND REMAIN AN ABSENT CLASS MEMBER.
According to the lawsuit, Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to report that: (1) Whole Foods routinely overstated the weight of its pre-packaged products and overcharged customers; and (2) consequently, Defendants’ statements about Whole Foods’ business, operations, and prospects were false and misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis.
On July 29, 2015, Whole Foods announced results for the third-quarter ended July 5, which fell short of expectations. Whole Foods attributed the sharp decrease in sales growth in the last two weeks of the quarter to bad publicity over its overcharging of customers in New York City. On this news, shares of Whole Foods Market fell $4.74 per share, or 11.61%, to close at $36.08 on July 30, 2015, damaging investors.
