Antimicrobial resistant E. coli and enterococci in pangasius fillets and prawns in Danish retail imported from Asia.

  19 October 2019

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) genes, resistant bacteria and antimicrobial residues may be transferred to humans through consumption of fish and prawns raised in aquaculture. This study investigated AMR in E. coli and enterococci introduced to Denmark via prawns and pangasius products imported from Asia. In total, 300 samples of frozen pangasius fillets and prawns were collected from retail shops around Denmark.
