Where is the FDA, aren't they supposed to be protecting us? I get so concerned about stories like this - and Mattell, and dog food, and, and, and, where is the FDA????

Seriously though how many people are eatting two bags of popcorn a day? And if they are do they really expect that is healty? Yes this isnt exactly the effect one would expect from eatting microwave popcorn but it's pretty much the same thing as the studies on Nutrisweet which basically say you have to eat a ridculous amount to even see effects. Yes it can happen but at some point your common sense should come into play as well, that much of anything that is fake probably isnt good. The FDA wasnt out of line on this one maybe OSHA but not the FDA, you couldnt really expect that people are going to sniff two bags of popcorn a day for their whole lives, that's just bizarre.
