Abstract Researchers from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) conducted an engineering control evaluation at Kraft Atlantic, a producer that manufactures food flavorings and gelatin, to evaluate their manufacturing processes regarding potential exposure to diacetyl and other food-related flavorings; document the effectiveness of existing exposure control techniques; and identify areas where engineering controls may need to be developed or improved. A separate NIOSH team of industrial hygienists conducted an exposure assessment at this facility. Personal sampling and ventilation assessment were conducted to evaluate potential risks during various tasks monitored during the engineering control survey.
