A new wave of occupational litigation - Flavor & Fragrance Lawsuits

A new wave of flavor and fragrance (Diacetyl) litigation is now emerging against the manufactures and suppliers of food flavorings for a chronic lung disease, bronchiolitis obliterans (BO), and other illnesses, resulting from worker exposures. 

The recently published report from Gov. Pat Murphy's transition team calls for sweeping reforms of the state's workers' compensation system. 

 This flu season has been epidemic. It has severely affected the occupational health network and created challenges not foreseen by the crafters of the 1911 workers’ compensation act(s). 

The State of New Jersey now supports a ban on fracking. NJ Governor Pat Murphy recognized the health and environmental consequences of using this process to explore and mine for natural gas.
