April 2017: A class-action lawsuit was filed against Monsanto Company for allegedly deceptively marketing Roundup Grass & Weed Killer concentrate products as making a specific number of gallons of Roundup when the containers actually make approximately 40%-50% less than the advertised amount. For example, according to the complaint, the 32 oz. container of Roundup Concentrate Plus is advertised as making 10 gallons of Roundup when it only makes 5 1/3 gallons. (Rawa et al v. Monsanto Company, Case No. 17-cv-1252, E.D. Mo.)
