Abstract

The prevalence of antimicrobial resistant bacteria has been increasingly monitored in animals in order to prevent the spread of these strains through the food supply chain. Particularly, the emergence of vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus and Extended-spectrum beta-lactamases (ESBL) producing Enterobacteriaceae has been investigated worldwide. In the current study, the frequency of antimicrobial resistance of generic Escherichia coli and Enterococcus isolated from wine carcasses sampled at the pre-chill stage was assessed.

Antimicrobial resistance in Escherichia coli and Enterococcus sp. isolated from swine carcasses at the pre-chill stage

Portland, Maine, USA

The prevalence of antimicrobial resistant bacteria has been increasingly monitored in animals in order to prevent the spread of these strains through the food supply chain. Particularly, the emergence of vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus and Extended-spectrum beta-lactamases (ESBL) producing Enterobacteriaceae has been investigated worldwide. In the current study, the frequency of antimicrobial resistance of generic Escherichia coli and Enterococcus isolated from wine carcasses sampled at the pre-chill stage was assessed.
