Roundup weed-killer residues were found in Cheerios, Doritos, Pita Chips, Oreos, and dozens of other American snack foods.
A panel of federal judges have created a Multi-District Litigation (MDL No. 2741) to centralize dozens of Roundup lawsuits into the Northern District of California under U.S. District Judge Vince Chhabria.
The FDA found residues of Monsanto's weed-killer Roundup (glyphosate) in honey samples from Ohio, Florida, and Louisiana.
A lawsuit has been filed by a man who used the weed-killer Roundup in his home garden and developed non-Hodgkin lymphoma.
With nearly two dozen Roundup lawsuits now filed, Monsanto has asked a panel of federal judges to centralize the litigation in one court.
