US antitrust officials filed suit on Wednesday to block the sale of General Electric's appliance business to Sweden's Electrolux, saying the $3.3 billion deal would harm consumers. The sale would limit competition and lead to higher prices of cooking appliances for US consumers, said the Justice Department, which filed the civil antitrust lawsuit in a US court in Washington. The transaction "would leave millions of Americans vulnerable to price increases for ranges, cooktops and wall ovens, products that serve an important role in family life and represent large purchases for many households," said Leslie Overton, a deputy assistant attorney general in Justice's antitrust division.
