This story comes out of Canada where a 17 year old has symptoms of popcorn lung. There have been numerous cases appearing as of late and this is becoming a major thought for the FDA.

Popcorn lung, or bronchiolitis obliterans, is an inflammatory condition that affects the bronchioles, tiny airways in the lungs. The name is in reference to former microwave-popcorn factory workers who developed bronchiolitis obliterans after breathing in vapor from butter flavoring added to the popcorn.
