Roundup Class Action Canada

Merchant Law Group LLP is pursuing class action litigation against Bayer Canada regarding Roundup (as sold across Canada since 1976 by Bayer/Monsanto) on behalf of residents in Canada who have had “Significant Exposure” to using Roundup and then developed Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma.

This class action seeks financial compensation for Canadian residents (including individuals who have died) who developed Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma after “Significant Exposure” to Roundup.

Please note, “Significant Exposure” has been defined within this class action litigation as: having used Roundup (a) on ‘more than two occasions in a 12-month period’ and (b) on more than 10 occasions in a person’s lifetime.

If you or a loved one (while a Canadian resident) developed Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma after “Significant Exposure” to Roundup, and you wish to be kept informed as to the status of this class action, please join our contact list for the Roundup Class Action, by completing the form below.

This class action litigation asserts that the active ingredient in Roundup products, glyphosate, is a human carcinogen that has been associated with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. The claim alleges that the defendants knew or ought to have known that Significant Exposure to Roundup products can cause cancer; but the defendants distributed and/or sold Roundup products nonetheless and failed to warn users and the public about those cancer risks.

Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma is a rare blood cancer that starts in the body’s immune system. Numerous reports have linked this cancer to glyphosate, the active ingredient in RoundUp. Numerous reports also link it to chromosomal and DNA damage in cells, as well as other types of blood-related cancers.

A review by the University of Washington found that agricultural professionals exposed to glyphosate have a 41% higher risk of contracting non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma than those with low or no exposure. It is getting harder and harder for Bayer to claim that this product is “perfectly safe” and does not cause cancer. There is overwhelming proof that it does.

Merchant Law Group, LLP and our representative plaintiffs have been leading the way in Canadian litigation, in terms of pursuing compensation for victims of Roundup-related non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma.

Did RoundUp repay your customer loyalty with non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma? Time to hold them accountable. Now, it’s your turn.

According to The Wall Street Journal, approximately 9,300 home gardeners, landscapers, farmers, and farm workers in the United States have sued Bayer on the grounds that RoundUp is a carcinogenic product that they’ve knowingly continued to release to the public.

Rally against Bayer. You’ve suffered because they lied. Jurors in the United States have found that Monsanto was both malicious and negligent. Monsanto failed to label RoundUp with the appropriate warnings. They failed to provide instructions on how to avoid the hazards. They failed to pull the product from the shelf, even when it became evident there was a danger to the public. Bayer continues to market and sell RoundUp even today. If you suspect you may have non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, don’t leave anything to chance. Get to a doctor to get a diagnosis.

How does a class action lawsuit work?

In a class action lawsuit, multiple victims band together to hold a company accountable for the harm they’ve caused. Often, when a company hurts many people at once it becomes very difficult to take them back to court again and again for multiple personal injury cases. Instead, all of the injured parties work together to bring their grievances to court.
