Shares in Brazil's JBS fall over 4% after US lawmakers seek probe

RIO DE JANEIRO (Reuters) - Shares in Brazilian meat processor JBS S.A. (JBSS3.SA) fell more than 4% early on Wednesday after U.S. senators sought to bring a probe into the company’s U.S. acquisitions.

Two U.S. senators called on the U.S. Treasury on Tuesday to open an investigation into the world’s largest meat processing company due to alleged ties with the Venezuelan government of leftist President Nicolas Maduro.
