According to a report from Bloomberg, A federal judge in Sacramento, has ruled in favor of Bayer AG and has blocked California from requiring the German-based company to tell consumers that its herbicide Roundup is known to cause cancer.
In the ruling the federal judge granted Bayer’s request to block the state from requiring the company or any businesses from providing a “clear and reasonable warning before exposing any individual to glyphosate”.
Bayer did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
Since it acquired Roundup from Monsanto in its $63 billion acquisition in 2018, Bayer has faced three juries over claims that Roundup causes cancer.
Bayer has denied the allegations made by more than 42,700 plaintiffs in the United States, and has stuck to its point that decades of studies have shown Roundup and glyphosate are safe for human use.
