What is Being Done?
For decades, Monsanto would advertise that Roundup® was a safe and effective product. In fact, even their ads claimed, “Roundup can be used where kids and pets all play and breaks down into natural material.” The New York Attorney General, in 1996, filed suit against Monsanto for false advertising for misleading farmers, gardeners, and agricultural workers in regards to falsely advertising that Roundup® was “safe and will not cause any harmful effects to people of the environment.” Although Monsanto denied wrongdoing, they agreed to stop advertising that Roundup® was safe in New York; nevertheless, Monsanto continues to falsely tout the safety of Roundup® in many other states.
