The Warsaw-based maker of orthopedics products, which recently was acquired by a group of private equity firms for nearly $11 billion, provided few details.
It said the investigation involves the sale of medical devices in multiple countries by companies in its industry. Biomet said it is cooperating fully.
Biomet and three other orthopedics firms last month paid $311 million to settle civil and criminal investigations into whether they paid kickbacks to surgeons to use their products. Biomet's share of the settlement was $26.9 million.
