NEW YORK, February 25, 2019 – Bragar Eagel & Squire, P.C. announces that a class action lawsuit has been filed in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois on behalf of all persons or entities who purchased or otherwise acquired The Kraft Heinz Company (NASDAQ: KHC) securities between May 4, 2017 and February 21, 2019 (the “Class Period”).
