WASHINGTON Jan 10 The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory
Commission released documents on Tuesday showing that 17 U.S.
reactors have parts from Areva SA's Le Creusot forge
in France, which is under investigation for allegedly falsifying
documents on the quality of its parts.
The number of reactors was more than the nine cited in
previous reports. Last month, authorities in France opened an
investigation into decades of alleged forgery of documents
relating to the quality of parts produced at the forge and used
in power plants around the world.
