The FDA's Center for Veterinary Medicine (CVM) announced the National Antimicrobial Resistance Monitoring System - Enteric Bacteria (NARMS) 2009 Executive Report. The report integrates and summarizes data regarding non-typhoidal Salmonella and Campylobacter isolates recovered from three sources: food animals at federally inspected plants, retail meats, and humans. Susceptibility data on Escherichia coli isolates taken from retail meats and chickens was also included in the report, as well as summary data from years past.
