Popcorn Liability Suit Ends in Settlement

A liability lawsuit against the manufacturers of an artificial butter flavoring used at a popcorn plant has ended in a settlement.
...(A)bout 30 former workers at the Gilster-Mary Lee Corp. plant in Jasper and their spouses ... sued the manufacturers, claiming they should have known the chemical diacetyl, used to make the butter flavoring, causes lung damage.

Yikes. And here I was bitching at my wife for buying the stuff at the local Infiniplex just because spending five bucks for half a cubic foot of air offended me...
