Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a leading national securities law firm, is investigating potential securities fraud at Appliance Recycling Centers of America, Inc. (“ARCA” or the “Company”) (NasdaqCM: ARCI).

A complaint has been filed in the United States District Court for the Central District of California on behalf of all persons who purchased or otherwise acquired ARCA publicly traded common stock between March 15, 2012 and February 11, 2015 (the “Class Period”).

On August 6, 2014, ARCA announced that the California Board of Equalization (“BOE”) would be conducting an examination of sales and use taxes covering ARCA’s appliance replacement sales.  Then, on February 11, 2015, the company announced an expected assessment of no less than $4 million from the BOE and that it would have to restate previously issued financial statements from 2011, 2012, and 2013, the quarters from those years, and for the first three quarters in 2014.
