NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Bragar Eagel & Squire, P.C. is investigating potential claims against Freshpet, Inc. (NASDAQ: FRPT). Our investigation concerns possible breaches of fiduciary duty by certain officers and directors of the Company.
In 2016, a lawsuit was filed in federal court against Freshpet and certain of the Company's executive officers alleging violations of the federal securities laws. The complaint alleged that the defendants misled investors about Freshpet's growth potential by failing to disclose material information regarding: (i) the Company's ability to expand in retail locations; (ii) difficulties producing Freshpet's baked product line; and (iii) production problems with Freshpet's shredded product line. On January 9, 2018, the federal court denied defendants' motion to dismiss the consolidated complaint in that action, thus permitting litigation to proceed against the Company and certain defendants.
If you purchased or otherwise acquired Freshpet shares and continue to hold shares, have information, would like to learn more about these claims, or have any questions concerning this announcement or your rights or interests with respect to these matters, please contact Brandon Walker or Melissa Fortunato by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or telephone at (212) 355-4648, or by filling out this contact form.
