April 21, 2016 (Shareholders Foundation) - An investor in shares of Freshpet Inc (NASDAQ:FRPT) filed a lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey over alleged violations of Federal Securities Laws by Freshpet Inc in connection with certain allegedly false and misleading statements made between April 1, 2015 and November 11, 2015.

According to the complaint the plaintiff alleges on behalf of purchasers of Freshpet Inc (NASDAQ:FRPT) common shares between April 1, 2015 and November 11, 2015, that the defendants violated Federal Securities Laws. More specifically, the plaintiff claims that between April 1, 2015 and November 11, 2015 one of the Company's material customers, Target Corp., was undergoing a corporate reorganization and, accordingly, was delaying the installation of a significant number of Freshpet Fridges, that two of the Company's supermarket customers were experiencing financial hardships such that it was likely that any Freshpet Fridges located in their respective stores would soon have to be removed, and that due to the foregoing, the Company was not growing its overall number of installed Freshpet Fridges at the levels communicated to investors and was tracking well below internal forecasts for such placements.
