NAT'L BLACK FARMERS ASSN SUES BAYER, CLAIMS GLYPHOSATE IS UNSAFE
Agri-Pulse reports:

A Black farmers group is suing Bayer, claiming the chemical giant put their lives and livelihoods at risk by downplaying the risks of Roundup and its active ingredient, glyphosate.

The company "did not provide the safety training necessary to use these products, meaning that Black farmers have, for decades, been exposed to dangerous chemicals that are becoming more and more dangerous with time," says the lawsuit, filed in federal court in St. Louis.

The National Black Farmers Association is the plaintiff.

Bayer says that "racism has no place in our society or at Bayer" but portrays the lawsuit as a baseless legal maneuver by the two law firms that are handling it.

Bayer says those lawyers "are holdouts in the Roundup product liability litigation, and people should see this action for what it is - an attempt by plaintiffs' lawyers to use media and more litigation to further their own financial interests."
