Bayer Statement on Full Defense Verdict in Shelton
Bayer today issued the following statement on the full defense verdict issued in the Shelton trial:
“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 was not the cause of Mr. Shelton’s cancer. These conclusions are consistent with the assessments of expert regulators worldwide as well as the overwhelming evidence from four decades of scientific studies concluding that Roundup™ can be used safely and is not carcinogenic. While we have great sympathy for Mr. Shelton, the jury has weighed the evidence from both sides in this case and concluded that Roundup™ is not responsible for his injuries.
“This is the third consecutive trial win for Monsanto, following favorable verdicts in Clark and Stephens.”
