A Dangerous Weedkiller Linked to Cancer is Still on Store Shelves
Roundup is one of the best-selling weedkillers in the nation, and its main ingredient called glyphosate is linked to deadly forms of cancer, including non-Hodgkin lymphoma. Despite this danger, it’s still on the market and can be purchased at many supermarkets and home improvement stores today.
Legal action has been underway against Roundup and its manufacturer Monsanto for years. In August 2018, a former school groundskeeper was awarded nearly $300 million in damages after a jury decided that his terminal cancer diagnosis was due to his usage of Roundup as part of his job duties. Thousands of additional claims against Monsanto related to Roundup and cancer diagnosis are in progress.
At Ferrer, Poirot & Wansbrough, we believe it’s unacceptable for manufacturers to sell products that can put people at risk of serious injuries and illnesses. But it’s even more heinous when manufacturers continue to sell dangerous products even in the face of evidence that suggests they’re extremely dangerous to the people who use them.
If you or someone you love used Roundup and developed non-Hodgkin lymphoma or another type of cancer, you may be eligible for compensation.
