California Verdict Sets Significant Precedent for RoundUp Lawsuits

A California court verdict has set a massive precedent for the cases brought against Monsanto. Lerner and Rowe Injury Attorneys is currently accepting cases.

Mega corporations like Monsanto are notoriously intimidating to go against on your own. We want to make sure that you don’t get bullied into submission. They have to be held accountable.”

— Kevin Rowe

PHOENIX, ARIZONA, US, August 16, 2018 / — At the end of last week, a California court reached a verdict that many believe has set a massive precedent of expectations for the continued wave of cases brought against Monsanto and it’s weed-killing product RoundUp. After deliberating for three days, a jury concluded that Dewayne Johnson’s use of RoundUp as a regular part of his former job as a school groundskeeper was responsible for the terminal cancer he developed. The court ordered Monsanto, the company that manufactures and distributes RoundUp, to pay Johnson $39 million for his suffering and a further $250 million in punitive damages. Our team at Lerner and Rowe Injury Attorneys is currently accepting and reviewing cases to represent you if you or a loved one was injured at the hands of Monsanto and RoundUp.

Links to Cancer

RoundUp has been thought to cause cancer, specifically non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, in a number of its users for years. Despite these claims, Monsanto has stood by and defended RoundUp’s safety for continued use. The company frequently cites studies that claim that glyphosate, the main weed-killing ingredient in RoundUp, isn’t immediately carcinogenic to humans. Yet, lawsuits against the product appear to focus more on the negative effects of the entire chemical solution, as opposed to the single ingredient.

Dewayne Johnson’s case was the first to reach trial, expedited by the terminal nature of his disease, and has set the tone for the remaining cases against the company. According to CNN, more than 800 patients are currently in the process of bringing cases against Monsanto that claim Roundup led to their developing cancer.

Monsanto is Standing by Their Product

Even after this monumental verdict, Monsanto continues to defend the safety of RoundUp and plans to continue to fight against these allegations. Following the decision, Monsanto’s Vice President Scott Partridge released a statement saying, “We will appeal this decision and continue to vigorously defend this product, which has a 40-year history of safe use and continues to be a vital, effective and safe tool for farmers and others."

If you, or someone you care about, were a user of RoundUp and developed non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, or other cancers, as a result, please don’t hesitate to reach out to Lerner and Rowe Injury Attorneys. We will work together with you to form a plan of action to fight for your justly due compensation. Let us do the heavy lifting for you. “Mega corporations like Monsanto are notoriously intimidating to go against on your own. We want to make sure that you don’t get bullied into submission by a company that is trying to cover up their gross negligence. They have to be held accountable,” says personal injury attorney Kevin Rowe.

PetVivo Holdings, Inc. Moves Manufacturing Facility, Creates Research and Development Laboratory.

(All Press Releases Will Be Available for Viewing on Facebook or the Web at )


(OTCMARKETS: PETV), PetVivo Holdings, Inc. ( an emerging biomedical device company, is pleased to announce the moving of its manufacturing facility and the creation of a research and development lab.

In an effort to expand manufacturing and create a research and development facility, Petvivo, Inc. moved from Elite Solutions in Rochester, Minnesota to the home of CytoMedical Design Group LLC (cmdg) in St. Paul, Minnesota. The location has far better access for Petvivo employees and eliminates the costs of hotels and mileage which the company has been absorbing sending and supporting staff from Minneapolis for weeks at a time to work in Rochester.

“We estimate that our cost of manufacturing will be reduced substantially. It is also time to address our plan to continue improving our product and initiate our research and development plans. Assistance for both manufacturing and research will be available from staff members of the cmdg group. Cmdg has additional clean rooms and square footage for our use “commented Wes Hayne, CEO of Petvivo Holdings, Inc.

The move was performed in one week, coordinated with three different moving companies. Each company specializing in specific equipment, with different degrees of sensitivity. The move is now complete, and production is expected to resume within the next three weeks. The new surroundings and extra space will help in building the efficiencies of the manufacturing process.

About PetVivo Holdings, Inc.
PetVivo Holdings Inc. (OTCPINK: PETV) is an emerging biomedical device company focused on the licensing and commercialization of innovative medical devices for pets and pet therapeutics. PetVivo is leveraging investments made in the human medical device industry to commercialize therapeutics for pets in a capital and time efficient way. A key component of this strategy is the accelerated timeline to revenues for veterinary medical devices, which enter the market much earlier than the more stringently regulated pharmaceuticals.
PetVivo's strategy is to commercialize proprietary products from human medical device companies specifically for the companion animal market. The company’s product pipeline includes seventeen animal and human therapeutics. A portfolio of twenty patents protects the company’s products, production processes and biomaterials. PetVivo’s lead product, a veterinarian-administered joint injection for the treatment of osteoarthritis in dogs, is scheduled for launch later this year.

Marrone Bio Innovations Submits Novel Bioherbicide to the EPA for Regulatory Approval

Novel mode of action for resistant weeds such as palmer amaranth

Marrone Bio Innovations (NASDAQ:MBII)

We are excited about what we have seen so far in 014 development. We have more work to determine appropriate doses on key target weeds, water volume, adjuvans and further expansion of the spectrum.”

— Amit Vasavada, Senior Vice President of R&D and Chief Technology Officer

DAVIS, CA, USA, August 14, 2018 / — Marrone Bio Innovations, Inc. (NASDAQ: MBII) (MBI), a leading provider of bio-based pest management and plant health products for the agriculture, turf and ornamental and water treatment markets, has submitted the registration package for its new bioherbicide, MBI-014, to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

Weeds are a major source of yield losses for most cropping systems. According to various market research reports, herbicides account for 40% of the $50 billion global pesticide market. Of the approximately $7.2 billion chemical pesticides sold in the U.S. each year, nearly $4 billion are chemical herbicides.

Grower surveys repeatedly show that weed control is the number one cost of organic food production since chemical herbicides are not allowed. In organic growing systems, herbicide options are extremely limited, consisting almost entirely of non-selective soaps and acids that typically require repeat applications, lack residual activity, only affect plant areas into which they come in direct contact, and sometimes cost more than hand weeding. According to the Organic Trade Association, organic food sales reached $45 billion in the U.S. and is the fastest growing segment of food, growing an average of 9.1% annually since 2008.

MBI-014 is a water dispersible microbial herbicide made from a new species of heat-killed bacteria, Burkholderia rinojensis (strain A396). This new herbicide has a novel mode of action per research conducted at the USDA Agricultural Research Service. While additional development work and field trials need to be conducted, MBI-014 could prove to be a valuable new tool for weed control when used in conjunction with other herbicides in a grower’s integrated pest management (IPM) program.

MBI-014 demonstrates post-emergent herbicidal activity across a range of weeds in laboratory and field tests. It shows evidence of uptake and moderate movement through different plant tissues. MBI-014 is most effective on some of the most serious weeds, some of which have developed resistance to multiple herbicide classes, such as palmer amaranth, waterhemp and others in the pigweed family (Amaranthacae).

“We are excited about what we have seen so far in the development of MBI-014,” said Amit Vasavada, Senior Vice President of R&D and Chief Technology Officer at Marrone Bio Innovations. “We do have more work to do in order to determine such things as appropriate doses on key target weeds, water volume required, adjuvant package needed and further expansion of the spectrum of targeted weeds.”

OBR Command Center, a modified 18-wheeler, donated by Prairie Fresh, rolls into action

More Than 20,000 Meals Served in Nine Days

When disaster strikes, our goal is to be there providing a helping hand and a hot meal. We're proud to put our passion for BBQ to work for the men and women fighting the fire and those impacted.”

— Stan Hays, co-founder and president/CEO of OBR

PLEASANT HILL, MO, USA, August 14, 2018 / — Peculiar, Mo. (Aug. 14, 2018) – Operation BBQ Relief (OBR) deployed to northern California in early August, supporting local efforts to fight the Carr Fire outside of Redding. During nine days on the ground serving first responders and members of the community in need, the OBR team:
• Served 20,553 meals
• Coordinated with more than 150 volunteers
• Coordinated with 31 organizations/shelters to receive meals
• Traveled more than 4,000 miles round trip

“When disaster strikes, our goal is to be there providing a helping hand and a hot meal. During our California deployment, we were proud to put our passion for BBQ to work for so many of the men and women fighting the fire and those impacted by it,” said Stan Hays, co-founder and president/CEO of OBR. “We also saw an immense outpouring of support from our network of volunteers in California, as well as donors across the country and around the world. Individuals looking for a way to help, along with the support of our partners, enable us to promptly respond when faced with these disasters.”

Working alongside volunteers who included California native and celebrity chef Guy Fieri, and a team from chef Jose Andres’ World Central Kitchen, the OBR team prepared meals that were delivered by the Salvation Army to four main evacuation sites, as well as many other groups serving those in need and first responders.

Making its first major deployment of 2018, OBR sent its Command Center, a full-size tractor-trailer sponsored by Prairie Fresh, a Seaboard Foods brand. It serves as the epicenter of operations, where volunteers track cooking progress, total meals served and supply inventories. Also deployed to California was “Boss Hog,” which is a flatbed trailer equipped with five commercial smokers provided by Ole Hickory Pits and a 56,000 watt generator provided by Sunbelt Rentals. Capable of smoking up to 350 pork butts every 10 hours, Boss Hog is where OBR volunteers prepare meals.

The OBR team, along with the OBR Command Center and Boss Hog, will be at The American Royal World Series of Barbecue® in Kansas City, Kansas, this September 14-16. During the Royal, they will be preparing meals for a military appreciation event, while also providing BBQ samples to other attendees.

Since its inception in May 2011, OBR has served more than 1.77 million meals with the help of 6,722 total daily volunteers. It’s been deployed for a total of 268 days in 50 communities in 25 different states around the U.S.

OBR depends on donations and volunteers to make a difference. Please visit to learn how to help.
