Brazilian prosecutors said on Friday that they had reached an "impasse" in talks with the parent company of meatpacking giant JBS SA over the size of the fine it would pay as part of a leniency deal under negotiation since February.

The prosecutors said in a statement that they are seeking a fine of 11.169 billion reais ($3.43 billion) over a 10-year period, while JBS' parent, J&F Investimentos, is seeking a payment of 1 billion reais. The public proscutor's office said its proposal would expire if it is not accepted by midnight on Friday.
