(AP) China's national market regulatory agency says it is investigating possible abuse of market dominance by the food processing and packaging giant Tetra Pak, in a sign that China is widening its scrutiny of operations by foreign companies in China.

Zhang Mao, director of the State Administration for Industry and Commerce, said Friday at a meeting that the agency has enlisted more than 20 provincial and municipal industry and commerce agencies around the country to look into Tetra Pak, according to a transcript of Zhang's speech posted to the administration's web site.

Comments from Tetra Pak were not immediately available. Tetra Tak entered China in 1979.

The investigation comes as China is looking into possible price-fixing by foreign dairy suppliers and examining drug costs by 60 foreign and domestic companies.
