Flavoring-Related Lung Injury Overview

Flavoring-Related lung injury is technically named bronchiolitis obliterans. Originally called Popcorn Lung Disease because it was first recognized mostly among factory workers in microwave popcorn plants, the illness is thought to be caused by the inhaled vapors of the butter flavoring (Diacetyl) used in microwave popcorn. Food flavors are not only used in microwave popcorn. We have represented people exposed to diacetyl who worked with cooking oil, candy, potato chips, food spices, frozen dough and even pet food.

People with flavoring-related lung disease are often misdiagnosed

The symptoms of flavoring-related lung disease often mimic those of other respiratory illnesses, such as asthma or emphysema. People suffering this illness are often misdiagnosed. That is why we recommend that people with suspect flavoring-related lung disease see a physician with experience diagnosing this illness. Our law firm works with a number of doctors who have developed a specialty in this rare disease. Contact our law firm to learn more about flavoring-related lung disease if you have been exposed to Diacetyl or other types of artificial flavoring in food products.
