On 14 March, the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) and the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) published the second joint report on antimicrobial resistance in zoonotic bacteria affecting humans, animals and food [1]. The report presents antimicrobial resistance data for 2010. Data from 26 European Union (EU) Member States were analysed by ECDC and EFSA to give an overall picture of antimicrobial resistance among Salmonella and Campylobacter isolates and indicator Escherichia coli and Enterococcus isolates. Limited data on meticillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus in animals and food were also included

This joint scientific report contributes to the work currently being carried out at EU level to fight antimicrobial resistance in zoonotic bacteria.
