Roundup Lawsuits Expanding to Lowes & Walmart

The Texarkana Gazette is reporting:

“A lawsuit filed earlier this month in a Texarkana federal court seeks damages on behalf of Arkansas and California consumers who bought Roundup weed killer products from Lowe’s stores in those states.

 A lawsuit filed earlier this month in a Texarkana federal court seeks damages on behalf of Arkansas and California consumers who bought Roundup weed killer products from Lowe’s stores in those states.

The suit, filed Sept. 13 by Texarkana lawyer Steve Harrelson in the Texarkana Division of the Western District of Arkansas, seeks to represent anyone who bought a Roundup product from a Lowe’s store in Arkansas in the five years preceding the filing of the suit and anyone who bought a Roundup product from a Lowe’s store in California in the four years preceding the filing.

Named as plaintiffs in the proposed class action complaint are Texarkana, Ark., resident Amanda Boyette and Oxnard, Calif., resident James Weeks.

The suit against Lowe’s is similar to one Harrelson filed in August against Walmart. That suit seeks damages on behalf of Arkansas residents who purchased a Roundup product from an Arkansas Walmart.

Neither Lowe’s nor Walmart responded to requests for comment.”

In July 2018, Moms Across America sent out a press release calling for Home Depot and Lowes to stop selling Roundup due to its carcinogenic effects. Neither outlet made corporate-level decisions to stop carrying the product. However, a change.org petition from 2018 was successful at getting Costco to no longer carry Roundup in its stores.
