SEABOARD INVESTIGATION INITIATED by Former Louisiana Attorney General: Kahn Swick & Foti, LLC Investigates the Officers and Directors of Seaboard Corporation - SEB


Former Attorney General of Louisiana, Charles C. Foti, Jr., Esq., a partner at the law firm of Kahn Swick & Foti, LLC (“KSF”), announces that KSF has commenced an investigation into Seaboard Corporation (SEB).

Since September 2014, the Company has been the subject of numerous subpoenas and informal inquiries by the U.S. Department of Justice relating to foreign entities and an affiliate of Seaboard, including a 2017 probe into money transfers and bank accounts in Congo and other African countries seeking “to interview certain Seaboard employees and to obtain testimony before a grand jury.” In February 2016, the Company revealed the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency was investigating it under the Clean Air Act with regard to ammonia releases at an Oklahoma processing plant, disclosing later in December 2017 that it had settled the violations by “agreeing to pay a civil penalty and to implement a supplemental environmental project…both totaling less than $1 million.” Recently, on November 8, 2018, the Company announced a $1,006,000 civil settlement with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and the Oklahoma Attorney General relating to employment practices by the company’s pork production plant in Guymon, Oklahoma.

KSF’s investigation is focusing on whether Seaboard’s officers and/or directors breached their fiduciary duties to Seaboard’s shareholders or otherwise violated state or federal laws.
