LONDON (AP) — Consumer goods giant Unilever says it has solved its pricing dispute with U.K. supermarket Tesco.

Tesco had pulled Unilever products from its website because it disagreed with price increases the company was requesting.

The dispute caught the public's attention, with some worrying that popular products like Marmite spread would run out, though there were no signs of shortages in shops.

Unilever said in a statement Thursday that "the supply situation with Tesco in the UK and Ireland has now been successfully resolved."
