Roundup™ Litigation

Statement on Jones

On December 22, 2023, a jury reached a verdict in favor of Monsanto in the Jones Roundup™ product liability trial before Judge Patrick Palacios in the Superior Court of California, San Benito County. Our statement: 

“The jury’s verdict in favor of the Company brings this trial to a successful conclusion and is consistent with the evidence in this case that Roundup™ does not cause cancer and is not responsible for the plaintiff’s illness. The verdict continues the Company’s strong record at trial, winning ten of the last fifteen cases, and validates its strategy of taking cases to trial based on the overwhelming weight of scientific and consistent worldwide regulatory support for the safety of these products.”

“We continue to stand behind the safety of Roundup™ and will continue to confidently defend the safety of our products and our good faith actions in future litigation.”
