If you have been working at the Mastertaste plant in Clark and Teterboro, New Jersey, and have developed shortness of breath and other respiratory symptoms, you may have popcorn lung disease. Contact our lawyers to learn about your rights and options.

Our lawyers handle popcorn lung cases nationwide. This disease is most frequently found in workers in microwave popcorn plants, where they are exposed to Diacetyl. Breathing dust and vapors from the Diacetyl in artificial butter flavoring causes the disease, also known as bronchiolitis obliterans. The illness can be cured only by a lung transplant, and is sometimes fatal.

We have successfully handled hundreds of popcorn lung cases on behalf of workers suffering from popcorn lung disease since 2001. We use the knowledge gained in the years since then on behalf of our clients throughout the country.

The symptoms of the disease, also called Bronchiolitis obliterans sometimes cause doctors to diagnose asthma or emphysema instead of popcorn lung disease. That is why it is important to consult a physician with experience in popcorn lung. If you are a popcorn plant worker and have respiratory symptoms such as breathing problems and skin irritation, we can help you find a doctor with experience with popcorn lung.
