Bayer Changes Product Formulas

by | Aug 5, 2021 | Featured Slider, Industry News, Pests and diseases, Products, Safety

Bayer will stop using glyphosate-based products in the U.S. Lawn and Garden market by 2023.

The company plans to develop new product formulas that rely solely on alternative active ingredients, and are reviewed by the EPA and state health leaders.

The company will also work with the EPA to develop more thorough warning labels on Roundup products.

These decisions come after months of litigation tied to safety concerns that glyphosate in Roundup products can cause non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.

Bayer has already settled or resolved nearly 100,000 lawsuits, but another 30,000 claims remain.

The case is being reviewed by the Supreme Court.

Bayer hopes to end the U.S. roundup litigation by the beginning of next year, but might still have to pay nearly $4.5 billion in case settlements.
