Who is at risk of Diacetyl inhalation?

Although Diacetyl is common in many food products, it appears that only people who have worked with the compound over a long period of time are at risk for developing an illness as the result of exposure. People who have worked in companies that produce microwaveable popcorn may be at risk because of the amount of Diacetyl used in the production of buttery popcorn. However, those who develop Constrictive Bronchiolitis usually have done so only after working for many years near Diacetyl.
