Languages of publication
The prevalence of antimicrobial resistance among food pathogens has increased during recent decades. In this work, pathogenic bacteria such as Staphylococcus aureus, Salmonella spp., Shigella spp., and E. coli were isolated following standard methods. The bacterial isolates were then tested for their sensitivity to common antibiotics using the disc diffusion method on Mueller-Hinton Agar. All of the pathogenic bacteria were found to be resistant to erythromycin and almost all were sensitive to penicillin.
