Ethyl carbamate (EC, urethane) is a naturally occurring component of all fermented foods and beverages. Because EC has shown a potential for carcinogenity when administered in high doses in animal tests, the wine industry is interested in reducing EC levels in their products.

I'm not concerned about the amount in a normal fermentation and distillation, but some people add urea as a neutrient and it is added to animal feeds that some use to ferment.
