California Metal Recyclers File Suit Against DTSC

EPA sued over its glyphosate decision

Center for Food Safety files suit over January 2020 re-approval of glyphosate.

The Center for Food Safety, on behalf of a broad coalition of farmworkers, farmers, and conservationists, filed a federal lawsuit against the Environmental Protection Agency over its January 2020 re-approval of glyphosate. The suing organizations are CFS, Beyond Pesticides, the Rural Coalition, Organización en California de Lideres Campesinas, and the Farmworker Association of Florida.       

While EPA defends glyphosate, juries in several cases have found it to cause cancer, ruling in favor of those impacted by exposure. After a registration review process spanning over a decade, EPA allowed the continued marketing of the pesticide.

While EPA has declared that glyphosate does not cause cancer, the World Health Organization declared glyphosate to be ‘probably carcinogenic to humans’ in 2015. Over 40,000 lawsuits have been filed against Monsanto, which was recently acquired by Bayer, by cancer victims asserting that exposure to Roundup caused them or their loved ones to develop non-Hodgkin lymphoma. Plaintiffs have prevailed in the three cases decided thus far.
