It reports that the inspector General of the U.S. International Development Finance Corporation told Senator Elizabeth Warren that his office has opened a probe into that loan and the circumstances surrounding it.

In early August, Eastman Kodak Company announced an appointment of a special committee that will look into the recent activities surrounding the announcement of a potential loan for Kodak Pharmaceuticals.

The loan — meant to bring pharmaceutical manufacturing to Rochester — came under scrutiny when a surge in stock prices began before the official announcement.
