In April, Reckitt Benckiser said it was reviewing strategic options for its small food business as it seeks to pay down debt following its planned $16.6 billion purchase of Mead Johnson.
McCormick was one of the parties interested in the business which is home to French`s mustard and Frank`s RedHot sauce, Reuters had reported in May.
McCormick and Reckitt Benckiser did not immediately respond to Reuters requests for comment.
