Canada makes drug price crackdown official over industry opposition
Frankfurt am Main: Kenneth Feinberg, the court-appointed mediator between chemical and pharma giant Bayer and thousands of plaintiffs claiming the herbicide glyphosate gave them cancer, on Friday denied reports the company had made an $8 billion settlement offer.
"Bayer has not suggested that it should pay $8 billion to settle all US Roundup cancer cases," Feinberg told German business newspaper Handelsblatt.
"Such a claim is a total fiction." he added.
