DOL To Issue Popcorn Lung Rules

Popcorn The Associated Press is reporting that the Department of Labor will announce on Tuesday new rules limiting workers exposure to diacetyl, the artificial butter flavoring that causes "popcorn lung."  Rick's post last week noted the recent litigation resulting from workers being harmed by diacetyl, but the previous DOL had not issued any regulations on the chemical.

There are no details yet, but they're expected tomorrow from Secretary Solis.

Stay tuned.
