At Humphrey, Farrington & McClain, P.C., our lawyers handle popcorn lung cases nationwide. This illness, so named because of its frequency among workers in microwave popcorn plants, is caused by exposure to Diacetyl. Breathing vapors from the Diacetyl in artificial butter flavoring causes the disease, also known as bronchiolitis obliterans. It is incurable and can be fatal. The only known treatment is a lung transplant.

Bronchiolitis obliterans has symptoms that are sometimes mistaken for asthma or emphysema. That is why it is important to consult a physician specializing in occupational diseases with experience in popcorn lung. Our law firm can help you find such a physician.
