The media spotlight is often a double-edged sword. No one knows this better than people who filed a Diacetyl Lawsuit. And yet, gossip and rumor-mongering aside, the real story here is being overlooked according to Sean Burke of AttorneyOne.

According to a new study, [published on June 25th, 2012 in the journal Chemical Research in Toxicology, chronic exposure to Diacetyl may contribute to protein clumping in the brain, which has been linked to Alzheimer’s disease, as reported by the National Safety Council. 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.

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 worked in a coffee production facility where some of the flavoring agents contained Diacetyl., 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 severe adverse events from Diacetyl, someone can easily and inexpensively deal with it. As Mr. Burke, director of Media Relations for, 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.”

In August 2010, the jury in Cook County Ill Circuit Court awarded $30.4 million to a chemical-flavoring plant worker disabled by exposure to Diacetyl (case no. 2006-L-012105). has further information on Diacetyl lawsuits including how to get in contact with legal counsel.
