European Union - The Community Summary Report on antimicrobial resistance in zoonotic and indicator bacteria from animals and food in the European Union in 2008

In 2008, 25 Member States submitted information on the occurrence of antimicrobial resistance in zoonotic bacteria to the European Commission and the European Food Safety Authority. In addition, two countries that were not European Union Member States provided information for the report. Assisted by its contractor, the Technical University of Denmark, the European Food Safety Authority analysed all the data, the results of which are published in this Community Summary Report.

In 2008, 25 Member States submitted information on the occurrence of antimicrobial resistance in zoonotic bacteria to the European Commission and the European Food Safety Authority. In addition, two countries that were not European Union Member States provided information for the report. Assisted by its contractor, the Technical University of Denmark, the European Food Safety Authority analysed all the data, the results of which are published in this Community Summary Report.

Resistance to antimicrobials was commonly found among Salmonella, Campylobacter, and indicator E. coli and enterococci isolates from animals and food in the EU. For many tested antimicrobials, large differences in the occurrence of resistance were observed between the Member States.

The observed high ciprofloxacin resistance levels in Salmonella, Campylobacter and indicator E. coli isolates are of concern, since fluoroquinolones are critically important antimicrobials in human medicine. Other critically important antimicrobial groups in human medicine include macrolides and third generation cephalosporins and some resistance to these antimicrobial groups were also recorded among the Salmonella, Campylobacter, indicator E. coli and enterococci isolates tested.
