Abstract

Extended-Spectrum Beta-Lactamases (ESBL) and AmpC Beta-Lactamases (AmpC) are of great concern because of their ability to cause antimicrobial resistance in Enterobacteriaceae hampering the effect of treatment with beta-lactam antibiotics. The main objective of this study was to assess the relative importance of different types of meat for the exposure of consumers to ESBL/AmpC and their potential relevance for human cases in Denmark.
