Oct 3 (Reuters) - 3M Co said it terminated its deal to buy Avery-Dennison Corp's office and consumer products business.
The U.S. Justice Department had in September threatened a lawsuit to block the $550 million deal over antitrust concerns.
Separately, Avery-Dennison said it will continue to pursue a sale of the business.
