2. -- U.S. state attorneys general have joined a federal antitrust probe of the planned merger between DuPont (DD) and Dow Chemical (DOW) , Reuters reported, citing three people familiar with the matter, while a separate group of state attorneys general are expected to join a probe of Bayer's $66 billion deal to buy Monsanto (MON) .
About seven states, including California, have joined the probe of Dow's planned merger with DuPont. It wasn't yet clear how many states would join the Bayer-Monsanto merger investigation, one source said.
The states are concerned that the companies may raise pesticide and herbicide prices for farmers following a merger, and have less incentive to compete to introduce better and cheaper products, two of the sources told Reuters.
DuPont and Dow said in separate statements they expected to gain approval for their deal. "In the U.S., we are working constructively with federal and state regulatory authorities, elected officials and all agriculture stakeholders to show the pro-competitive benefits of the merger," the companies said.
Committee chairman Sen. Charles Grassley (R., Iowa) and Sen. Patrick Leahy (D., Vt.) said in a letter to the FTC that the agency should look into issues including school contracts that restricted purchases of EpiPen competitors, The Wall Street Journal reported.

Mylan has been heavily criticized for a more-than-sixfold price increase in the EpiPen since it bought the product in 2007.
