Judge: California can’t require cancer label for weed killer

Published Tue Jun 23 2020 03:46:36 GMT+0000 (Coordinated Universal Time)
A federal judge says California can’t require a cancer warning label on the weed killer Roundup. The San Francisco Chronicle says a judge in Sacramento issued a permanent injunction Monday barring the label requirement. California wanted the label because Roundup _ the world’s most widely used weed killer _ contains glyphosate, which an international agency said was a probable cause of cancer. But the judge says the Environmental Protection Agency and others have found no connection to cancer. He says the “great weight of evidence” indicates it isn’t a known carcinogen.
