Class-action law firm urges GOOS investors to learn their shareholder rights against Canada Goose to recover investment losses
SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 07, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Hagens Berman Sobol Shapiro LLP alerts GOOS investors to a recently filed securities class action filed against the company.
CLASS PERIOD: Mar. 16, 2017 – Aug. 1, 2019
LEAD PLAINTIFF DEADLINE: Nov. 4, 2019
Call: Reed Kathrein, who is leading the firm’s investigation: 510-725-3000
GOOS Securities Class Action:
According to the Complaint, Defendants concealed that Canada Goose (1) sourced the down and fur used in its clothing products in ways that treated animals in an unethical and inhumane manner, and (2) was thus violating relevant FTC regulations pertaining to false advertising with respect to sourcing practices.
On Aug. 1, 2019, The New York Post published an article reporting that People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (“PETA”) assisted the U.S. Federal Trade Commission’s investigation of the company by giving the FTC a video about Canada Goose’s trapping standards, showing trappers bludgeoning, stomping on and shooting trapped coyotes. This news drove the price of Canada Goose shares sharply lower that day.
If you invested in Canada Goose between Mar. 16, 2017 and Aug. 1, 2019 (the “Class Period”) and suffered losses, you may qualify to be a lead plaintiff – one who selects and oversees the attorneys prosecuting the case. Contact Hagens Berman immediately for more information about the case and being a lead plaintiff.

Under the new program, whistleblowers who provide original information may receive rewards totaling up to 30 percent of any successful recovery made by the SEC.
