A new study suggests that diacetyl, an artificial butter flavoring ingredient, may cause long-term neurological damage to workers. This isn’t the first time the substance has been indicated as dangerous, previous studies have already linked diacetyl to respiratory and other health problems among workers at microwave popcorn and food-flavoring plants.
The Virginia Injury Lawyer’s Perspective:
As an experienced Virginia (VA) railroad attorney I am experienced in working with families that have had chronic and lifelong exposure to dangerous substances. One such substance is asbestos which causes cancer. Although asbestos and diacetyl are very different the dangerous situations that workers are exposed to is similar. Now that several studies point out the danger of the substance a red flag should be raised for manufacturers and workers should be informed of the danger and given every safety precaution available.
