Antimicrobial resistance in non-Typhoidal Salmonella from retail poultry meat by antibiotic usage-related production claims – United States, 2008–2017
Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) in non-typhoidal Salmonella from poultry is a public health concern. Injudicious use of antibiotics in humans and agriculture fuels the emergence of resistance. The objective of this study was to characterize the prevalence, antibiotic susceptibility profiles and genetic resistance mechanisms of Salmonella isolated from US retail poultry meat samples with and without antibiotic-related claims.
This study suggests that conventionally raised poultry meat was more likely to be contaminated with multi-drug resistant Salmonella, and those Salmonella are more likely to carry genes for antibiotics resistance.
