According to the Complaint, throughout the Class Period, JBS made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that its executives bribed regulators and politicians to subvert food inspections of its plants and overlook unsanitary practices, such as processing rotten meat and running plants with traces of salmonella; and as a result, the Company's statements about its business, operations and prospects were materially false and misleading and/or lacked a reasonable bases at all relevant times. On March 17, 2017, news outlets reported that Brazilian federal police raided the offices of JBS and dozens of other meatpackers following a two-year investigation into alleged bribery of regulators to subvert inspections of their plants and ignore unsanitary practices. Police arrested two JBS employees, among others. JBS stated in a securities filing that three of its plants and one of its employees were targeted in the probe. Upon release of this news, the stock price of JBS dropped materially, which harmed investors according to the Complaint.
