Bragar Eagel & Squire, P.C. is investigating potential claims on behalf of Hain Celestial Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: HAIN) stockholders concerning whether the company's officers and board of directors violated the federal securities laws.

Hain Celestial revealed that "during the fourth quarter, the Company identified concessions that were granted to certain distributors in the United States. The Company is currently evaluating whether the revenue associated with those concessions was accounted for in the correct period and is also currently evaluating its internal control over financial reporting. The Audit Committee of the Company's Board of Directors is conducting an independent review of these matters and has retained independent counsel to assist in that review."
