NARMS Now: Human Data

Graphic: Narms NowA new interactive tool from CDC makes it easier and quicker to find out how antibiotic resistance for four bacteria transmitted commonly through food – Campylobacter, E. coli O157, Salmonella, and Shigella – has changed over the past 20 years.

Antibiotic Resistance from the Farm to the Table

Graphic: Antibiotic Resistance: From the Farm to the Table. Resistance: All animals carry bacteria in their intestines. Antibiotics are given to animals. Antibiotics kill most bacteria. But resistant bacteria survive and multiply. Spread: Resistant bacteria can spread to animal products, produce through contaminated water or soil, prepared food through contaminated surfaces, and the environment when animals poop. Exposure: People can get sick with resistant infections from contaminated food and contaminated environment. Impact: Some infections cause mild illness, severe illness, and may lead to death.Learn how bacteria become resistant to antibiotics and how antibiotic-resistant bacteria can be transmitted by food and cause human illness.

  • Each year, antibiotic-resistant infections from foodborne germs cause an estimated 430,000 illnesses in the United States.
  • Ensuring that our food is safe includes tracking the spread of antibiotic resistant infections between people, the food they eat, and sources of our food supply.
  • Learn more about antibiotic resistance and food safety.
