Abstract

The emergence of antibiotic-resistant foodborne pathogens due to the use of antibiotics in humans and animals is discussed. A number of antibiotics are used in production agriculture to promote growth and disease resistance. The sharing of human antibiotics with livestock has resulted in the development of resistant strains in livestock and rendered the drugs ineffective in humans. Multi-drug resistant Salmonella has increased worlwide and it is ubiquitous in the environment as a leading cause of foodborne illness.
