Monsanto may be in trouble in Europe. After months of controversy over disparaging studies concerning Round Up’s main ingredient, glyphosate, the Committee on Environment, Food Safety & Public Health (ENVI) has formally objected  to the re-authorization by the European Commission of the herbicide.

Voting to uphold this objection were 36 members, while 6 members voted against it and 18 did not vote.

ENVI stated:

“So long as serious concerns remain about the carcinogenicity and endocrine disruptive properties of the herbicide glyphosate, which is used in hundreds of farm, forestry, urban and garden applications, the EU Commission should not renew its authorization. Instead, it should commission an independent review and disclose all the scientific evidence that the s (EFSA) used to assess glyphosate.”

Members also called the herbicide’s re-authorization “irresponsible and unacceptable.”

MEP Anja Hazekamp criticized the European Commission for even considering giving Round Up the green light in Europe:

“With this decision the European Commission fails to protect the health of humans, animals and the environment. Member states and more than 1 million citizens have already expressed their concerns over the re-authorisation. We will use all possible means to prevent the European Commission from contaminating our environment for another 15 years.”
