Contemporary Era, Europe

This container once contained glyphosate, a non-selective herbicide. From 1974, the patent for this product belonged to the Monsanto company, but joined the public domain in 2000. A joint FAO/WHO meeting in 2016 concluded that glyphosate is unlikely to pose a carcinogenic risk to humans exposed via the diet.
