(Worthy News) - A strain of Salmonella Newport in some beef in the United States and in some soft cheeses in Mexico has been found to be resistant to antibiotic treatment, according to a release from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention published Friday.
The CDC reported the results of a study conducted on Salmonella Newport that was not responding to two oral agents that are frequently recommended to treat Salmonella infections.
Resistance to antibiotics is rare in human cases of Salmonella, though most Salmonella patients don't actually need antibiotics at all. [ Source: USA Today (Read More...) ]
