Bayer is appealing a District court judgment against it and its Roundup product which has glyphosate as an important ingredient. The judgment is for $25 million, and Bayer thinks it’s a wrong judgment.
The German company’s main argument is that US federal agencies have determined its product is safe and not a carcinogen.
Bayer noted that the
verdict defies both expert regulatory judgment and sound science.
Because the EPA has consistently approved the sale of glyphosate without a cancer warning and has stated that including such a warning on the label would render the product misbranded, any state-imposed cancer warning is expressly preempted
Wow. Truth as defense. What a concept.
