Rosen Law Firm, a global investor rights law firm, is continuing to investigate potential securities claims on behalf of shareholders of BRF S.A. (NYSE: BRFS) resulting from allegations that BRF may have issued materially misleading business information to the investing public.

On March 17, 2017, news outlets reported that Brazilian federal police raided the offices of BRF and dozens of other meatpacker following a two-year investigation into alleged bribery of regulators to subvert inspections of their plants. The probe, known as "Operation Weak Flesh," had uncovered about 40 cases of meatpackers who had bribed inspectors and politicians to overlook unsanitary practices such as processing rotten meat and running plants with traces of salmonella. Police arrested three BRF employees, as well as 20 public officials. On this news, shares of BRF fell $0.99 per share or 7% to close at $11.81 per share on March 17, 2017.
