Occurrence of antibiotic resistance among Enterobacterales isolated from raw and ready-to-eat food – phenotypic and genotypic characteristics

  01 April 2021

The aim of this study was phenotypic and genotypic characterization of antibiotic-resistant food-borne Enterobacterales. The largest number of isolates was identified as Enterobacter cloacae (42.4%) followed by Escherichia coli (9.8%), Proteus mirabilis, Salmonella enterica, Proteus penneri, Citrobacter freundii (7.6% each), Citrobacter braakii (6.6%), Klebsiella pneumoniae and Klebsiella oxytoca (5.4% each). More than half of isolates (52.2%) were resistant to at least one antibiotic.
