The CEO of British consumer group Reckitt Benckiser has issued an apology to the victims of its deadly humidifier disinfectants in South Korea.
That's according to Seoul's special probe commission on the 2011 scandal that rattled the nation.
An earlier press release by RB Group on Friday said its chief executive Lax Narasimhan had conveyed the apology to a Korean government delegation.
The two sides held meetings in RB's headquarters over the past week.
Korea's fact-finding commission is aiming to get to the bottom of the series of deaths and lung disorders linked to RB products, with some 14-hundred Koreans estimated to have died between 2000 and 2011.
