Diacetyl Exposure Lawsuits

Bronchiolitis Obliterans is a rare and life-threatening lung disease that can be caused by the inhalation of diacetyl or 2,3 pentanedione, chemicals used for flavoring food products. These flavoring chemicals are also used in snack food plants, dairy plants, confection plants, coffee roasting plants, pet food plants and refrigerated dough plants.

The Bronchiolitis Obliterans attorneys at The Carlson Law Firm are currently investigating potential lawsuits for factory workers who have been diagnosed with this life-threatening lung disease across the United States.

What Is Diacetyl?

Diacetyl is a highly toxic chemical compound that is very dangerous to not only people who work with it but also to consumers. Diacetyl exposure can cause permanent, severe, and potentially lethal lung disease in workers and consumers. Despite this, many people continue to work with diacetyl and are not told of the steps they need to take to protect themselves.

Misdiagnosis Alert

Unfortunately, bronchiolitis obliterans is frequently misdiagnosed by physicians as asthma, bronchitis, pneumonia or emphysema. If you smoke e-cigarettes or vapes and have been diagnosed with asthma, bronchitis, pneumonia or emphysema, you may still have a case.

Do I Qualify?

Diacetyl exposure related to food flavoring has spawned hundreds of lawsuits by plant workers. The widespread use of diacetyl in the food industry as an ingredient in snacks, beverages, baked goods, and a variety of other edibles, and the chemical’s association with bronchiolitis obliterans has led some commentators to suggest that diacetyl could be the “new asbestos.” To find out if you, or a loved one qualify, contact us today for a free, no-obligation consultation.
