Roundup Weed & Grass Killer Settlement, Rebates Up to $90 or More

Roundup Weed & Grass Killer Settlement

Roundup Weed & Grass Killer Settlement

The Roundup class action lawsuit seeks to obtain compensation for alleged false advertising, breach of warranty, and unjust enrichment. Plaintiffs argue that the statement which appears on the above Roundup® Products, “targets an enzyme found in plants but not in people or pets” is false and misleading. Monsanto denies Plaintiffs’ allegations and any wrongdoing, and the Class’s right to recover anything. Nevertheless, it has agreed to settle the lawsuit for the purpose of avoiding the time and expense of further litigation. This Roundup Weed & Grass Killer settlement provides rebates of 10% for eligible products for those affected. Maximum amounts vary by state, but could reach $90 without proof and even more if you can provide proof for your purchases.
