Boston Scientific (NYSE:BSX) said the office of California attorney general Kamala Harris launched a probe this month of its transvaginal surgical mesh sales.

The Natick, Mass.-based medical device company also said a whistleblower lawsuit was filed against its neuromodulation business alleging violations of the False Claims Act "through submission of fraudulent bills for implanted device," according to a regulatory filing.

Boston Scientific said Harris' office and "several other state attorneys general offices intend to initiate a civil investigation into our sales of transvaginal surgical mesh products."
