Bayer Considers Halting Sales of Roundup's Active Ingredient

Bayer is considering stopping sales of glyphosate, the active ingredient in the weedkiller Roundup, to private users who apply it in their gardens, Reuters reported, citing a German newspaper. 

The paper said the possible stoppage is part of ongoing talks to settle the tens of thousand of lawsuits that contend Roundup causes cancer. 

Separately, Kellogg Co. set a goal of phasing out the use of glyphosate from its supply chain for consumer snacks and cereals by 2025. 

As reported previously, Bayer reportedly is discussing $10 billion in payouts for the Roundup legal claims.

Ken Feinberg, the lead mediator for the cases, has indicated deals resolving as many as 85,000 Roundup claims in the U.S. may be reached soon and that he was optimistic about settling the cases.
