The company's quarterly report says the Department of Labor notified the company in April 2015 about the probe.

A 3M spokeswoman said that the company would have nothing to say beyond what was written in the recent quarterly report. The government did not return a call seeking comment.

The company's annual report in 2016 showed that the pension plan was worth nearly $19.7 billion.
