Abstract

We report a high prevalence of MCR-1 and CTX-M-1-producing in three Tunisian chicken farms. Chickens were imported from France or derived from French imported chicks. The same IncHI2-type plasmid reported to carry those genes in cattle in France and in a food sample in Portugal was found in Tunisian chickens of French origin. This suggests a significant impact of food animal trade on the spread of -mediated colistin resistance in Europe.
