If you have been working at the Mastertaste popcorn plant in Waunakee, Wisconsin, and have developed respiratory symptoms, you may be suffering from popcorn lung disease. To learn about your rights and options, contact us. Our law firm handles most of the popcorn lung disease cases in the country.

Our attorneys handle popcorn lung disease cases throughout the United States. This disease occurs in workers in microwave popcorn plants. Workers in these plants are exposed to Diacetyl, the principal chemical in the butter flavoring used in microwave popcorn. Breathing the dust and vapors during mixing is known to cause the illness, also known as bronchiolitis obliterans. The illness can be cured only by a lung transplant, and is sometimes fatal.

Humphrey, Farrington & McClain, P.C., is the only law firm in the United States to try a popcorn lung case to verdict before a jury. We have successfully handled hundreds of popcorn lung cases on behalf of workers suffering from popcorn lung disease since 2001, winning multi million settlements and verdicts on behalf of sick workers. We use our knowledge gained since then on behalf of our clients throughout the country.

The symptoms of the disease, also called Bronchiolitis obliterans are similar to those in asthma, chronic bronchitis, and emphysema. Many workers have been misdiagnosed and continue to work in the place that is making them sick. That is why it is important to consult a physician with experience in popcorn lung. If you are a popcorn plant worker and have breathing problems and skin irritation, we can help you find the right doctor.
