Are You Or A Loved One Suffering From Popcorn Lung Disease? We Can Help.

Popcorn lung disease, also known as popcorn workers' lung disease, is a newly-identified form of the rare and life-threatening disease bronchiolitis obliterans. Its cause is very specific — the disease develops when workers inhale the chemical diacetyl, which is an artificial butter flavor used to make many food products, including candy, microwave popcorn and even wine.

Popcorn lung disease usually strikes groups of workers and subsequent lawsuits for injuries are most effectively handled in groups, or by mass tort claims.
