ABSTRACT
The article discusses the presence of extended-spectrum β-lactamase (ESBL)-producing Escherichia coli in wild geese in Belgium. Two ceftiofur-resistant E. coli isolates were obtained from faecal samples. It mentions that the first E. coli isolate carried a blaSHV gene encoding ESBL SHV-12 while the second isolate was found to carry a blaTEM gene encoding ESBL TEM-52. The results of the study suggested that the resistance determinants have disseminated in the natural environment.
