Rigrodsky & Long, P.A.:
& Long, P.A. announces that it is investigating potential legal
claims against the board of directors of Pinnacle Foods Inc. ("Pinnacle"
or the "Company") (NYSE: PF)
regarding possible breaches of fiduciary duties and other violations of
law related to the Company's entry into an agreement to be acquired by
The Hillshire Brands Company ("Hillshire") (NYSE: HSH),
in a transaction valued at approximately $6.6 billion.

Under the terms of the agreement, public shareholders of Pinnacle would
receive $18.00 in cash and 0.50 shares of Hillshire common stock for
each share of Pinnacle they own. Based on Pinnacle's closing stock price
on May 9, 2014, Pinnacle shareholders would have received consideration
valued at approximately $36.47 per share.
The investigation concerns whether Pinnacle's board of directors failed
to adequately shop the Company and obtain the best possible value for
Pinnacle's shareholders before entering into an agreement with Hillshire.
If you own the common stock of Pinnacle and purchased your shares before
May 12, 2014, if you have information or would like to learn more about
these claims, or if you wish to discuss these matters or have any

respect to these matters, please contact Seth D. Rigrodsky or Gina M.
