Monday, 16 Nov 2009 11:38 AM

ATLANTA -- A Kuwaiti company has been charged with conspiring to defraud the U.S. in connection with multibillion-dollar contracts to feed American troops in Iraq, Kuwait and Jordan.

Federal prosecutors said Monday that Public Warehousing Co. made false statements and submitted false claims to manipulate prices and overcharge for food for troops.

The company is registered in Kuwait and has received more than $8.5 billion in food supply contracts.

Acting U.S. Attorney Gentry Shelnutt says the fraud investigation is ongoing.

The case was filed in federal court in Atlanta, and the company is scheduled for a first court appearance on Friday. A phone listing for the company could not immediately be found.
