Japanese and U.S. investigators are looking into the maker of the lithium ion batteries on the Boeing 787 jetliner.
GS Yuasa, the battery manufacturer, said investigators visited the company's headquarters in Kyoto, Japan, on Monday.
All 50 787s worldwide were grounded last week after an overheated battery forced an emergency landing in Japan.
