    OSHA Urged to Issue Worker Safety Standard for Popcorn Flavoring - Occupational Hazards
    Two major labor unions and several dozen scientists and safety and health experts are petitioning the Department of Labor and OSHA to immediately issue an emergency temporary standard to protect workers who are exposed to diacetyl, a common ingredient in microwave popcorn.

    Representatives from the United Food and Commercial Workers Union (UFCW) and the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, in a July 26 phone conference, said OSHA has not adequately responded to "compelling scientific evidence" indicating exposure to diacetyl can cause bronchiolitis obliterans – otherwise known as "popcorn lung disease."
