Unless you use organic butter made from milk with no hormones as well as not coming from cows that consumed feed with pesticides, herbicides, or fertilizers, it is possible your butter has some or all of these in it. These are harmful chemicals to all people.

Hope this link helps. Since butter is a natural product this is most likely 'the flavoring' and nothing beyond it added and even it is a natural bi-product. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diacetyl
