strong relation between the quartile of estimated cumulative exposure to Diacetyl and the frequency and extent of airway obstruction
San Diego, CA (PRWEB) May 28, 2012
The media spotlight is often a double-edged sword. No one knows this better than people who suffer from Diacetyl severe adverse events. And yet, gossip and rumor-mongering aside, the real story here is being overlooked according to Sean Burke of AttorneyOne.
According to court documents, on May 15th, 2012, several coffee production plant workers filed a lawsuit in the Texas Eastern District Court (case no. 6:2012cv00327) claiming that they are suffering from lung disease as a result of exposure to Diacetyl. Plaintiffs are Emanuel Diaz de Leon, Ignacio Garcia, Julysabel Cerda, Silvia Guzman and Jose Anaya. Plaintiffs worked in a coffee production facility where some of the flavoring agents contained Diacetyl. They allegedly suffer lung disease from their exposure to Diacetyl. Diacetyl is a chemical found in a variety of foods and beverages like beer, wine, and butterscotch flavoring and, most commonly, used for the butter flavoring in microwave popcorn.
Another worker, disabled by exposure to Diacetyl, was awarded $30.4 million by the jury in Gerardo Solis v. BASF Corp. case (number: 2006-L-012105) in Cook County Ill Circuit Court, in August 2010.
AttorneyOne.com, a recognized authority on law, can provide helpful advice and simple solutions including how to get in contact with legal counsel so that, in case of Diacetyl severe adverse events, someone can easily and inexpensively deal with it. As Mr. Burke, director of Media Relations for AttorneyOne.com, added, “What all this information really illustrates is that threat from Diacetyl remains. For that reason, our focus should squarely fall on getting the word out and assisting people in finding the right legal assistance.”
A report of the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health published in the "New England Journal of Medicine" in 2002, revealed that there was a strong relation between the quartile of estimated cumulative exposure to Diacetyl and the frequency and extent of airway obstruction. The conclusion was that, “the excess rates of lung disease and lung-function abnormalities and the relation between exposure and outcomes in this working population indicate that they probably had occupational bronchiolitis obliterans caused by the inhalation of volatile butter-flavoring ingredients.”
