(Corrects Reuters instrument code in first paragraph)

April 28 (Reuters) - Lysol maker Reckitt Benckiser Group reported a higher-than-expected jump in quarterly sales on Wednesday, as households kept up their heightened cleaning regimens a year into the COVID-19 pandemic, and the company backed its full-year outlook.

The company reported a 4.1% rise in like-for-like sales for the first quarter, higher than the 2.4% growth analysts had expected, according to a company-supplied consensus. (Reporting by Siddharth Cavale in Bengaluru; Editing by Shounak Dasgupta)
