A number of popular breakfast cereals, granolas, oatmeal and snack bars could possibly contain a dangerous weed killer called glyphosate, produced by the Monsanto company, according to a report broadcast on New York’s ABC Channel 7 Eyewitness News.

A former school grounds keeper was awarded $289 million last week after he sued Monsanto, claiming that his terminal cancer was caused by the company’s weed killer, which contained glyphosate.
