A scary-sounding report published by an environmental group shortly after the trial found traces of the chemical in dozens of everyday foods, from cereal to granola bars.
Thirty-one of the breakfast foods were found to contain levels of glyphosate that were higher than the level that EWG deems safe for children.
Glyphosate was even found in a few organic products, though most had non-detectable levels. While five of these contained glyphosate, none were above the group's health benchmark of 160 ppb.
Australia's peak farm advocacy group has condemned the ruling, in which a Californian jury found the glyphosate in Monsanto's Roundup weed killer contributed to a former school gardener developing terminal cancer at age 42, in 2014.
"The draft human health risk assessment concludes that glyphosate is not likely to be carcinogenic to humans", the EPA said in a 2017 draft risk assessment for glyphosate. However the FDA has not yet released any official results.
The highest levels of glyphosate were detected in two samples of Quaker Old Fashioned Oats, and the company was quick to defend themselves in a statement.
"I was shocked", said Dr. Jennifer Lowry.
"We proudly stand by the safety and quality of our Quaker products".
Arsenal's Petr Cech backed to keep No. 1 spot by Unai Emery
Unai Emery has confirmed goalkeeper Petr Cech will keep his place in goal for Arsenal when they head to Chelsea in the Premier League on Saturday.
The trader also referred to a report published today in the German economic daily Wirtschaftswoche, according to which Monsanto is also threatened with other million penalties in the usa because of the weed killer Dicamba.
While it became the world's most popular and widely used herbicide, the question of whether it causes cancer has been hotly debated by environmentalists, regulators, researchers and lawyers - even as Monsanto has insisted for decades that it's perfectly safe.
Kellogg also responded, saying, "Our food is safe.(EPA) sets strict standards for safe levels of these agricultural residues and the ingredients we purchase from suppliers for our foods fall under these limits". Glyphosate is the world's most common weedkiller.
"There's been a lot of controversy over whether this chemical actually has the ability to cause cancer". "Through the use of glyphosate, farmers are able to practise minimum tillage - protecting soil structure and nutrients and ultimately increasing the storage of soil carbon", she said.
Simply stated, there is far too much glyphosate in their products for parents to feel comfortable feeding them to their kids.
"It is time now for them to step up and do their jobs to ban glyphosate", said Zen Honeycutt, who heads Moms Across America, a group formed to raise awareness about toxic exposures. "Any levels of glyphosate that may remain are significantly below any limits and well within compliance of the safety standards set by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the European Commission as safe for human consumption". Once the oats are transported to us, we put them through our rigorous process that thoroughly cleanses them (de-hulled, cleaned, roasted and flaked).
"We don't think it does enough in particular to protect children", he said.
The EPA and the Food and Drug Administration say they are studying the current guidance for safe levels of glyphosate in food.
