From Politico’s “Morning Agriculture”:

Antimicrobial resistance has reached “alarming levels” globally and surveillance of the problem is lacking, according to the World Health Organization’s first ever global surveillance report, released this week.

The 257-page report highlights gaps in the surveillance of antibiotic resistance in foodborne bacteria, in particular, stating that there is a lack of harmonized standards. The report can be found here: http://bit.ly/1hV6O7E
