    Dawn, I would hope they would not. If you’re unsure and no information is on the label, you might be able to contact the manufacturer directly for ingredient information.

    After being absolutely freaked out by this episode — my family has been using butter sprays for at least a decade — I called the ConAgra number on the back of “Parkay Fresh & Creamy Taste Spray.” I was informed that they do not use diacetyl in any of their products. Hopefully someone puts together a page of products that contain diacetyl.
