Reckitt Benckiser sales miss as China infant formula demand falls

LONDON, July 30 (Reuters) - British household goods maker Reckitt Benckiser reported worse than expected second-quarter sales, hurt by a slowdown in demand for infant formula in the United States and China, its biggest market.

Like-for-like sales in the second quarter were flat, missing the 1.9% growth expected by analysts, according to estimates supplied by the company.
