Reading Time: < 1 minute

 Block & Leviton LLP (, a securities litigation firm representing investors nationwide, is investigating whether BRF S.A. (“BRF” or the “Company”) (NYSE: BRFS) and certain of its officers and directors violated federal securities laws and encourage significant investors in the company’s American depository receipts (“ADRs”) to contact the firm.

On March 5, 2018, before trading began, police in Brazil arrested BRF’s former chief executive and announced a new stage of their probe into the Company regarding an alleged bribery scheme to subvert food safety inspections at the Company’s facilities.

On this news, BRF’s stock price has plunged nearly 20% in after-hours trading, causing tens of millions of dollars in losses to investors.
