The visualised data show the resistance of Salmonella, E. Coli and Campylobacter in food, animals
and humans, country by country from 2018.
If no data are presented for single countries, it means that fewer than 10 bacteria were tested for
resistance. It does not mean absence of resistance. It does not mean absence of resistance.
The countries monitoring and reporting are the EU Member States, Iceland, Norway and Switzerland.
Resistance data based on fewer than 10 bacteria are not presented in the data viz.
Monitoring for calves is only mandatory for certain Member States. The monitoring of AMR in
Salmonella from pigs and calves under one year of age, as well as in Campylobacter coli from fattening pigs
is performed voluntarily by MSs.

Salmonella causes salmonellosis, which is the second most common zoonotic disease in the
EU. Salmonella is a common cause of foodborne disease outbreaks. https://www.efsa.europa.eu/en/topics/topic/salmonella
Campylobacter causes an illness called campylobacteriosis. This is the most frequently
reported foodborne illness in the EU. https://www.efsa.europa.eu/en/topics/topic/campylobacter
Escherichia coli (E. coli) is a bacterium commonly found in the gut of warm-blooded
organisms. Most strains of E. coli are not harmful but are part of the healthful bacterial flora in the
human gut. https://www.efsa.europa.eu/en/topics/topic/shiga-toxin-producing-e-coli-outbreaks
As less than 10 bacteria were reported, the percentage of resistance is not shown.
