BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

Mead Johnson Nutrition to pay $12 million to settle bribery charges

Reprints

(Reuters) — Mead Johnson Nutrition Co. will pay $12.03 million to settle civil charges that it ran afoul of U.S. bribery laws after its China-based unit made improper payments to certain health care professionals at state-owned hospitals, U.S. regulators said Tuesday.

The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission announced the settlement with the company in an in-house court filing. The SEC said Mead Johnson violated the books and records requirements of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act because it failed to reflect the improper payments on its books or have an adequate system of internal accounting controls.
