Dear colleagues,

On Monday the Alliance to Save our Antibiotics released results from its recent study into UK-origin retail pork and poultry meat sold at the country’s largest food retailers. A quarter of chicken samples contained cephalosporin-resistant ESBL E. coli. Up to 51% of E. coli bacteria from pork and poultry were resistant to trimethoprim and 19% to gentamicin.
