WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. International Trade Commission said on Wednesday it would investigate whether certain Anheuser Busch InBev NV (ABI.BR) beverage dispensing systems and components infringe a Heineken NV (HEIN.AS) patent.

Heineken alleges that the importation and sale of the systems and components violate section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930 and has requested that the USITC issue a “limited exclusion order and cease and desist orders,” the commission said in a statement.
