FDA REPORT SHOWS LITTLE CHANGE IN ANTIBIOTIC RESISTANCE
National Pork Producers Council (NPPC) reports:

The FDA this week released its latest report on trends in antimicrobial resistance in certain bacteria collected from people, animals and retail meat.

The 2019 National Antimicrobial Resistance Monitoring System (NARMS) report showed that 78% of human isolates of Salmonella, one of the two leading bacterial causes of foodborne illness in the United States, were not resistant to antibiotics, a trend that has remained consistent for the past 15 years.

Although changes to how pork samples are collected make it difficult to determine trends, the report showed no overall increase in resistance in swine-associated samples, according to NPPC, which has been supportive of NARMS as a source of science-based data on antimicrobial resistance.
