Tell Amazon, Costco, Home Depot and Walmart to Stop Selling Monsanto’s Roundup

Consumers are urged to get involved and demand that Roundup herbicide be pulled from retail shelves

Friday, November 15, 2019 - Plaintiffs with cancer are suing retailers who carry Monsanto's Roundup weedkiller. The latest instance is a case brought by a St. Claire Missouri resident Kyle Koelker names Ace Hardware as a co-defendant along with Bayer, the parent company of Monsanto, maker of the deadly herbicide. Bayer purchased Monsanto for $63 billion in 2018. According to the Madison-St.Claire Record, "The Ace Hardware franchise, on West Main Street in Belleville, is accused of negligence, fraud, and breach of warranty for selling the Roundup product to (the) 35-year-old St. Clair County resident." The lawsuit contends "Ace Hardware marketed, sold, distributed and otherwise placed Roundup into the stream of commerce, and in the course of same, directly advertised and marketed Roundup to consumers, including the plaintiff." The plaintiff alleges that using Roundup regularly for many years caused him to develop non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, a rare and deadly form of cancer of the lymph nodes. The plaintiffs in previously successful lawsuits claim that Monsanto failed to provide an adequate warning that users should use protective waterproof clothing and wear a respirator while applying the chemical. Roundup herbicide cancer lawyers have vast experience representing Monsanto Roundup cases and offer the best legal representation nationally.

Major US retailers like Amazon, Costco, Home Depot and Walmart have been urged to take the initiative and discontinue selling Monsanto's glyphosate-based weedkiller ever since the International Agency for Cancer Research (IARC) determined that glyphosate was "probably carcinogenic" to humans. This ruling prompted the State of California to immediately place Roundup Herbicide on its official list of products that contain chemicals that cause cancer. The wording of the agency's ruling, however, fell short what would have been required to mandate Monsanto to place a cancer warning label on bottles of Roundup sold in the state. As a result, the responsibility as to whether or not to discontinue sales or to warn consumers has fallen on the shoulders of retailers. Three cases have awarded four plaintiffs hundreds of millions of dollars in damages for alleging that coming into direct skin contact with the chemical mixture in Roundup led to developing cancer. Roundup contains a surfactant chemical that encourages glyphosate to adhere to a plant and get absorbed. This surfactant chemical also causes glyphosate to stick to human skin and bioaccumulate to levels that even Monsanto admits could be hazardous to one's health.

The environmental activist group (OC) is leading an effort to block a deal that would significantly decrease the amount of Roundup and glyphosate sold in major retailers. The group requests that its readers sign a petition urging major retailers to take the deadly chemical off their shelves. People are encouraged to share the petition on social media sites Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. OC specifically targets the removal of Scotts Miracle-Gro, a lawn-care additive, from retailers across the country.
