Technical Abstract: Objectives: Agricultural use of antimicrobials can select for antibiotic resistance both in pathogens and in commensal organisms which may transfer resistance to humans through the food supply. Antibiotic resistance is on the increase among foodborne pathogens and other bacteria. The purpose of this symposium is to discuss surveillance for antimicrobial resistance in foodborne bacteria, focusing mainly on Salmonella, Campylobacter, and Enterococci. In addition to surveillance data, the regulatory response to mitigating the incidence of antibiotic resistance resulting from antimicrobial use in both the United States and Europe will be addressed.
