NEW YORK, Aug. 23, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Harwood Feffer LLP (www.hfesq.com) is investigating potential claims against the board of directors of Hampton Creek, Inc. ("Hampton Creek" or the "Company"), concerning whether the board has breached its fiduciary duties to investors.
On August 19, 2016, The New York Times reported that the Securities and Exchange Commission has opened a preliminary inquiry into the Company. The inquiry was reported to be in response to a report from Bloomberg News that described a scheme by Hampton Creek to buy large quantities of its Just Mayo product by sending undercover contractors into stores.
Our investigation concerns whether the Company board of directors has breached its fiduciary duties to shareholders, grossly mismanaged the Company, and/or committed abuses of control in connection with the foregoing.
