California cannot force Monsanto and other companies to place warning labels on products containing glyphosate, a federal judge ruled Monday, delivering a major victory to Monsanto and a collection of agricultural groups.
The International Agency for Research on Cancer received a fresh round of criticism Tuesday on Capitol Hill for its review of glyphosate, which IARC found to be a probable human carcinogen three years ago.
Warning of widespread impacts throughout the food supply chain, wheat growers are spearheading a lawsuit against California for listing glyphosate as a carcinogen under the state’s Proposition 65 law, which requires labeling of ingredients “known to the state to cause cancer.”
WASHINGTON, June 21, 2017 - The already controversial decision by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) – determining that the widely used herbicide glyphosate probably causes cancer in humans – is now even more subject to debate.
WASHINGTON, March 15, 2017 – Glyphosate is not a carcinogen, the European Chemicals Agency has concluded, setting the stage for the chemical – the active ingredient in Roundup – to receive long-term approval in Europe.
