Majority of Chicken Meat Infected With Anti-Biotic Resistant Bacteria

A study has shown that 88% of chicken meat in Dutch shops is infected with ESBL bacteria. These are resistant to various anti-biotics such as penicillins and cefalosporins. Already last year several thousands of Dutch patients were infected with bacteria which was anti-biotic resistant. Pig meat and beef are also infected although in lesser percentages.
