Toys 'R' Us hit by antitrust probe over pricing of baby products

Douglas McIntyre

Federal antitrust officials are as busy as they were when they were breaking up the old AT&T or looking at breaking up Microsoft (MSFT). The government is currently reviewing the proposed search joint venture between Yahoo! (YHOO) and Microsoft and examining IBM's (IBM) practices in the mainframe industry. Even the NFL is under the microscope.

And now, the Federal Trade Commission is after Toys 'R' Us.
