Monsanto reach settlement in roundup false advertising case
Monsanto Reaches Settlement in Roundup False Advertising Case
August 16, 2017
Seed and chemical corporation Monsanto has reached a tentative settlement that could put an end to a class action suit brought by consumers who allege that the company misrepresented the amount of its herbicide Roundup that may be made from concentrated formulas of the product.
Details of the settlement were not revealed, but part of the arrangement is to move the case from California to Missouri. That decision was made in the wake of the recent Bristol-Myers Squibb decision by the U.S. Supreme Court, which holds that individual states do not have jurisdiction to rule in cases filed by people who do not reside in those states.
At issue in the suit is the allegation that a 32-ounce bottle of Roundup concentrate is advertised to be sufficient to make 10 gallons of the herbicide; a suit filed by Elisabeth Martin says that that amount makes only 5 gallons when prepared according to the instructions on the label.
Roundup, the world’s dominant herbicide, has been implicated in numerous cases of cancer, including many fatalities.
If you believe that Big Ag has misrepresented its products, or if you have been harmed by Roundup or any other agricultural chemicals, you may be entitled to significant financial compensation. Contact the expert attorneys at TheLawFirm.com so we can help you with your case.
