Extended-spectrum beta-lactamases (ESBLs) have become widespread enzymes in food-producing and companion animals worldwide. However, in cattle mastitis, a major cause of economic loss in the dairy industry, ESBL-producers were rarely described. In this study, from a collection of 1427 Escherichia coli and Klebsiella pneumoniae isolates causing clinical mastitis in France, we report 0.4% (6/1427) of the isolates carrying an ESBL gene. These six isolates were genetically unrelated and recovered… CONTINUE READING
