WASHINGTON (Sputnik) - A US jury ordered German pharmaceutical giant Bayer to pay more than $2 billion to a California couple over allegations the company’s weed killer product caused their cancer, media reported.

The jury awarded $2.055 billion to Alva and Alberta Pilliod, a northern California couple who had used Roundup weed killer product for 35 years, the Wall Street Journal said on Monday.
