Levi & Korsinsky, LLP has filed a class action lawsuit in the United
States District Court for the Western District of Texas on behalf of
current stockholders of Whole Foods Market, Inc. ("Whole Foods" or the
"Company") (NASDAQ:WFM) in connection with the planned acquisition of
the company by Amazon.com, Inc.

On June 16, 2017, Whole Foods announced it had entered into an agreement
in which Amazon.com, Inc., through its wholly owned subsidiary, Walnut
Merger Sub, Inc. would acquire all outstanding shares of Whole Foods
common stock for $42.00 per share. The lawsuit, which was filed on July
13, 2017 and entitled Riegel v. Whole Foods Market, Inc., et al.
(Case No. 1:17-cv-00674), alleges that defendants solicit the tendering
of stockholder shares in connection with the sale of the Company to
Amazon through a Recommendation Statement that omits material facts
necessary to make the statements therein not false or misleading.
Stockholders require this material information to make an informed
decision on whether to tender their shares.
