Fluoroquinolone sales in food animals and quinolone resistance in non-typhoidal Salmonella from retail meats – United States, 2009-2018
Antimicrobial-resistant non-typhoidal Salmonella (NTS) infections are associated with worse health outcomes compared to antimicrobial-susceptible infections. Misuse of antimicrobials in food animals can amplify the emergence of antimicrobial resistance.
One Health integrated surveillance for NTS isolates from food of animal origin and human sources is necessary to elucidate trends in resistance to critical drugs. The study also underscores the need for judicious use of antimicrobials in agricultural settings.
