This is part two of our three-part series on Diacetyl. Please read below:
Diacetyl has been found to be dangerous for workers in manufacturing facilities that use diacetyl, especially when heating and boiling is involved. High exposure to diacetyl in production settings has been linked to rare respiratory illnesses such as coughing, wheezing, and shortness of breath. In some very rare cases, diacetyl has been linked to the closure of airways, asthma and, in extreme cases, lung disease, for some popcorn and chemical manufacturing workers.
