Antimicrobial-Resistance of Food-Borne Pathogens

  02 April 2021

The antimicrobial-resistance (AMR) in bacteria represents a major challenge for public health. The misuse and or overuse of antibiotics in livestock is known to have contributed to the emergence of AMR. To date, there is growing concern over the possibility of AMR transmission via the food chain. AMR food-borne pathogens in food-producing animals can spread to humans via consumption of contaminated food or water, and direct contact with animals. Moreover, bacteria in food that is AMR are likely to be more persistent in food processing environments. With regard to this, monitoring of AMR in the food chain is crucial for understanding the diffusion of resistance, providing relevant risk assessment data.

This Special Issue includes full research articles and one review focused on the emergence of AMR in food chain.
