Finland sees decline during ESBL monitoring
Food chain monitoring in Finland has found a low level of an indicator of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) in meat and animals, according to recent review of data.
Extended-spectrum beta-lactamases (ESBL) and AmpC-producing E. coli bacteria were reported for broilers, chicken meat, and beef in 2020.
Incidence of ESBL and AmpC-producing bacteria has been lower in Finland than the average level in European countries since screening of retail food products began in 2015.
