  “California law requires certain substances identified by IARC to be listed as carcinogenic, the OEHHA said.”
Monsanto Sues California Over Roundup

 

FRESNO, Calif. (CN) – In a preemptive strike, Monsanto sued California to try to stop it from listing glyphosate, the main ingredient in Roundup, as a carcinogen.
Monsanto sued the Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) on Thursday in Fresno County Court, seeking an injunction to stop it from glyphosate to the state’s Proposition 65 list of chemicals known to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm.

…The OEHHA announced in September last year that it planned to add glyphosate to the Prop. 65 list after the World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), based in France, classified it in March as a probable human carcinogen.
