TOPIC: How Safe Is That Stuff

How Safe Is That Stuff 08 Oct 2001 11:25 #25655

I read an article out of Jasper, MO. over the weekend about workers in a microwave popcorn plant who are suffering from a rare lung disease that they contracted from breathing in the vapors from the artificial butter flavor they use on their popcorn. Some of the workers actually needed lung transplants. Yikes, that's really scary.
Of course the company wasn't named but it led me to wonder how safe are they those toppings that they use on theater popcorn. I consume a lot of that stuff and it got me thinking. Do any of you know the lowdown?

The topping they use in microwave popcorn is a powder I believe and is not the same as the artficial butter flavored oil in most cases) which is used in theatres.

Industrial settings are different than a retail enviro. "butter" topping is just oil and stuff. Is it any good for you? No worse than a snickers and a Coke. I would not fill my bathtup with it and lay around in it with a snorkel!

I just had this awful vision of a bathtub full of butter topping with some one in it snokeling. I won't be able to eat for days :P
