Abstract

Twenty-six Escherichia coli isolates recovered from food animal feces and retail ground meats and 14 urinary E. coli isolates from outpatients were shown to carry blaCMY-2. Similar CMY-2-encoding plasmids were found among seven human and three ground-pork isolates. These data indicate the community spread of blaCMY-2 in southern Taiwan.
