Feb 14, 2013, 08:30 ET from Tripp Levy PLLC

NEW YORK, Feb. 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Tripp Levy PLLC, a leading national securities and shareholder rights law firm, announces that it has been retained to represent shareholders of Heinz.  H.J. Heinz Company (NYSE: HNZ) ("Heinz") today announced that it has entered into a definitive merger agreement to be acquired by an investment consortium comprised of Berkshire Hathaway and 3G Capital. Under the terms of the agreement, Heinz shareholders will receive $72.50 in cash for each share of common stock they own.

The investigation concerns whether the board of directors of Heinz engaged in a full and fair auction for the company obtaining the highest price possible for shareholders while not obtaining personal benefits for themselves in selling to this investment consortium at this price. If you own Heinz common stock and you wish to discuss this matter with us, or have any questions concerning your rights and interests with regard to this matter, please contact
