Occurrence of vancomycin-resistant enterococci in pork and poultry products from a cattle-rearing area of France

Occurrence of vancomycin-resistant enterococci in pork and poultry products from a cattle-rearing area of France

Journal of Clinical Microbiology 39(6): 2354-2355

Meat products were collected from public retail outlets and tested for the presence of vancomycin-resistant enterococci (VRE) in an area with a high prevalence of VRE reported in human fecal samples. VRE were detected in 66% of the samples, and a predominance of VanC strains was found, which is also true for human fecal samples.
