ST. LOUIS — Consumers are suing Monsanto Co., Osborn & Barr Communications, and others alleging failure to warn and negligence.
Robert Armstrong, John A. Adams, Susan Adlman and others filed a complaint on Feb. 2 in the St. Louis Circuit Court against the defendants alleging that they falsely represented that Roundup is safe for humans and the environment.
According to the complaint, the plaintiffs allege that, as a result of exposure to Roundup, a herbicide that contains the active ingredient glyphosate, a toxic herbicide, plaintiffs and their decedents developed non-Hodgkin lymphoma, a cancer of the lymphatic system. As a result, they were caused to suffer pain, discomfort and economic hardship.
The plaintiffs hold the defendants responsible because they allegedly negligently manufactured, distributed and sold Roundup, a defective and unreasonably dangerous product, without disclosing the dangerous characteristics of it, and that exposure to it can cause cancer and other serious illnesses.
The plaintiffs request a trial by jury; and seek compensatory and punitive damages of more than $25,000, plus interest, costs, and all other relief that the court may deem just and proper. They are represented by James G. Onder, W. Wylie Blair and Mark E. Berns of Onder Law LLC in St. Louis.
