Abstract or Summary
  • Urethane is a by-product of the fermentation and distillation of alcoholic beverages. In recent years, concern has been expressed over its presence in such beverages because of studies which demonstrate that urethane can cause cancer in various animal species and, as a consequence, must be regarded as a potential carcinogen in humans. The degree of risk, if any, that urethane may pose to humans is unknown because of a lack of adequate scientific and toxicological information. The U.S Food and Drug Administration and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, which share legal jurisdiction over the regulation of alcoholic beverages, are currently seeking the scientific data necessary to determine more accurately the relationship, if any, between urethane level in foods and beverages and human cancer.
