Cheers to Costco for stopping Sales of Roundup
Costco recently announced that it will halt all sales of Roundup and other glyphosate-containing herbicides. This comes after a campaign by Moms Across America asking the store, as well as Home Depot and Lowes, to stop carrying these product due to the carcinogenicity. We are delighted to see a big company doing the right thing; as mass tort lawyers our primary focus is on winning compensation for the ill or injured, or the families they leave behind. However, a very important secondary benefit of our work is to bring light to the dangerous properties of products and help to bring about real change. Lee Johnson’s verdict this summer continues to make ripples, and this Costco ban is no doubt part of the snowball effect. We hope other stores will follow suit. Read the full story here.
