Recently the United States Supreme Court has rejected two bids by Bayer (the purchaser of Monsanto) to dismiss litigation that Round Up weed killer causes cancer.
Round Up is a glyphosate based herbicide manufactured by Monsato. Essentially it is a weed killer. Glyphosate is known as a probable human carcinogen that is linked to the development of Non Hodgkin’s Lymphoma (NHL).
The Supreme Court denied a petition by Bayer that had asked the Court to consider whether the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA) preempts a state law failure to warn claim regarding warnings labels on Round Up weed killer.
