77 plaintiffs from different states allege that their use of Roundup caused them to develop non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL).

Among the plaintiffs is Illinois resident Sharlean Gordon, who bought and used Roundup for at least 15 consecutive years until around 2017, and was diagnosed with a form of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma in 2006. She claims to have developed this lymphoma as a result of her exposure to glyphosate. Her lawyers have asked for $36 million in damages, accusing Monsanto, now Bayer, of continuing to sell Roundup despite knowing that it posed a cancer risk. On May 23, 2023, a St. Louis County jury returned a verdict in favor of Monsanto.
