Salmonella contamination in raw chicken meat in Kabul city: Occurrence and antibiotic resistance patterns

Sayed Arif Ahmadi, Ahmad Jan Abi, Mohammad Farzad Afshar.


Abstract
Objective: Food-borne illnesses pose a significant risk to public health on a global scale and are a major contributing factor to illness and death rates worldwide. Salmonella strains found in chicken meat and its related products may be the likely source of a multi-country outbreak. Research is scarce regarding the occurrence of antimicrobial-resistant Salmonella in chicken meat within Afghanistan; therefore, in the present study, the aim was to identify Salmonella found in uncooked chicken meat in the local markets of Kabul city and ascertain their susceptibility to commonly used antibiotics.
Materials and Methods: One hundred raw chicken meats were gathered from four districts of Kabul city from May 2022 until April 2023; the isolates were then identified using culture, biochemical tests, and the analytical profile index; an examination of antimicrobial susceptibility was conducted utilizing the disk diffusion technique.
Results: Out of 100 samples, only 8 (8%) tested positive for Salmonella spp. The disk diffusion results from Salmonella-positive samples showed multidrug resistance; maximum resistance was against ampicillin (100%) followed by norfloxacin (75%), nalidixic acid (62.5%), cefoxitin (62.5%), tetracycline, and ciprofloxacin (50%).
Conclusion: The global occurrence of foodborne infections and antibiotic resistance has increased and preserved public health concerns around the world. Identifying zoonotic bacteria and their antimicrobial resistance patterns is critical for controlling their transmission and facilitating effective antimicrobial therapy in both humans and animals.

Key words: Multidrug-resistance; prevalence; antibiotic susceptibility; public health; zoonoses
