It’s a good thing Amazon got its Prime Day celebration out of the way on Monday. Bloomberg today reported that the European Union is planning to open a formal investigation into the retailer ”within days” as part of its continued efforts to better regulate US tech companies.

The report claimed that EU competition division leader Margrethe Vestager has wanted to ”escalate a preliminary inquiry into how Amazon may be unfairly using sales data to undercut smaller shops on its Marketplace platform” for months. If the anonymous sources are correct, Vestager will have finally gotten her way, allowing her to open a full antitrust probe into how Amazon manages its online marketplace.
