A snapshot of multi-year trends for Salmonella antimicrobial resistance
The National Antimicrobial Resistance Monitoring System (NARMS) is a national public health surveillance system through which FSIS partners with state and local public health departments, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to track changes in antimicrobial susceptibility of select foodborne bacteria found in ill people (CDC), retail meats (FDA), and food animals (FSIS). The food animal sampling at FSIS focuses on testing food products and intestinal (cecal) contents. Findings from NARMS are annually published as Integrated Reports (IRs).
FSIS has recently released a report to highlight Salmonella antimicrobial resistance (AMR) trends from 2014-2019. This report focuses on sustained AMR trends and emerging areas of concern in Salmonella serotypes of public health concern.
