No occupational adverse effects reported; Melamine, a metabolite, causes urinary bladder calculi (NOAEL = 150 mg/kg/day) and bladder cancer (NOAEL = 225 mg/kg/day); "These bladder tumours are thus an effect that occurs at high doses, having a threshold that is well above the expected human exposure through residues."
