Jury Issues Verdict in "Popcorn Lung" Suit

A jury in Colorado has awarded $7.2 million to a Colorado man who suffered from a condition known as "popcorn lung" due to a chemical used in flavoring microwave popcorn. In his lawsuit, the plaintiff claimed that Gilster-Mary Lee Corp., a private food-labeling company, failed to alert customers that its popcorn product contained diacetyl, which can be dangerous. The man is believed to be the first consumer diagnosed with the disease from years of eating buttered popcorn. Robert Boczkiewicz, Chicago Tribune 09/20/2012
