Abstract:

Salmonella is an enterobacterium present in the environment as well as in a large number of animals which, in most cases, serve as host asymptomatically. This bacterium is the leading cause of collective food poisoning in the world. In view of the expansion of salmonellosis in the world and the emergence of multi-resistant strains of Salmonella, this is a threat to human safety. The aim of this study is to determine the prevalence rate of Salmonella and their antibiotic resistance profile, antibiotics often used in cattle breeding in the district of Abidjan. In this study, we were able to analyze 420 samples of cattle fecal and 84 strains of Salmonella (20%) were isolated. Twenty-three (23) different serotypes were identified. Some of these strains were resistant to the antibiotics used. In view of the outbreak of salmonellosis and the emergence of multidrug-resistant strains Salmonella, biosecurity measures have to be adopted in cattle breeding in order to avoid the risk of food poisoning in the population.
