Levi & Korsinsky, LLP announces that it has commenced an investigation of Sanderson Farms, Inc. ("Sanderson Farms" or the "Company") (NASDAQ:SAFM) concerning possible violations of federal securities laws by the Company and/or certain of its officers and directors.

On October 7, 2016, Pivotal Research downgraded its peer company Tyson Foods, Inc. from "buy" to "sell," due to fears of a class action against Tyson Foods, Sanderson Farms and other peers over price collusion in the broiler-chicken market. It is alleged that in 2008, Tyson Foods, Sanderson Farms, and several other companies conspired by sharing proprietary data and reducing production to support prices.
