business news in context, analysis with attitude

General Mills revealed that it has notified by the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) that it may be facing charges related to its accounting and sales practices. While the company said its procedures are in compliance with SEC rules, it is cooperating with the probe.

General Mills was first contacted by the SEC when the agency was looking into its relationship with Ahold, which has been the subject of an ongoing probe related to its accounting scandal.
