WASHINGTON, May 1 (Reuters) - The U.S. House of Representatives Judiciary Committee on Friday called on Amazon founder Jeff Bezos to testify to the panel about "competition concerns" related to the company's business practices.

In a letter to Bezos signed by Democratic and Republican members of the panel, the lawmakers referred to an April 23 Wall Street Journal story about Amazon and said "If the reporting in the Wall Street Journal article is accurate, then statements Amazon made to the committee about the company's business practices appear to be misleading, and possibly criminally false or perjurious."
