Now, the company’s image, and the image of its top-selling product, have taken yet another hit, this time in the United States.
In California, where organic farming and healthy living has gained a huge foothold, the company’s flagship product Roundup will now be labeled in similar fashion to the WHO ruling — with a label stating that it is a possible cancer threat.
Monsanto Defense Team Denied
According to this report from the Associated Press out of Fresno, CA where the court proceedings took place, Monsanto attorney Trenton Norris argued on Friday that the potential warning label would have direct financial consequences for the company.
“It will absolutely be used in ways that will harm Monsanto,” he said according to the report, which can be read in full by clicking here, adding that consumers would likely see the labels and stop buying Roundup. The firm also said that it will challenge the ruling.
