Abstract

This study aimed to investigate the prevalence of Salmonella spp. and Listeria monocytogenes, their antimicrobial resistance profile. L monocytogenes was not isolated from any of the samples. Salmonella spp. was detected from 32 (8%) out of the 400 collected samples. Antimicrobial resistance was most frequently observed to nalidixic acid (100%), tetracycline (93.75%), erythromycin (90.6%), streptomycin (84.3%), followed by kanamycin (62.5%). Also, 37.5% of Salmonella isolates were phenotypically confirmed as ESBL producers. Multiple drug resistance was defined 93.75% of the Isolates. Among the Salmonella isolates, all of them harbouring qnrB and qnrS genes and, 37.5% of them presented bla(TEM) gene..
