Is lack of oversight at farms accelerating the spread of antibiotic-resistant bacteria?
"Most of us know by now we shouldn't over use antibiotics so we don't end up with bacterial infections that the drugs can't treat but it's interesting to note that more than twelve million pounds of medically important antibiotics sold in this country are not for use in humans there for livestock and the antibiotics are driving the spread of drug resistant bacteria in the animals that can get passed on to us through food if we don't cook and handle it properly yet it's almost impossible to get on the farms to conduct inspections and stop infection outbreak from spreading even for public health officials my job is to look for outbreaks when I see them I describe them and I'm supposed to stop them very simple in two thousand fifteen Washington state epidemiologist Scott Lindquist investigated an outbreak of antibiotic resistance salmonella tied to roaster picks our estimate is anywhere between three to four thousand people probably ill with this entire outbreak but we had a hundred and seventy five folks that have positive cultures and meaning that they was severely ill yeah severely ill with dozens hospitalized because the salmonella was resistant to antibiotics when quiz traced the cause of the outbreak to a slaughter house call compounds in me we come in and we find the bacteria essentially everywhere drains utensils the truck that transports some from the farms was it the slaughter houses falls I have no idea and I don't say that lightly I've only gone back as far as the slaughter house so I want to go back to the farms and I want to sample the pics at the farm to say do they have this bug this exact DNA fingerprints before they came to the slaughter house the farm she wanted to visit or in Montana where the slaughter house told him the pics came from but to his surprise Lindquist who was conducting the investigation was flatly turned down did you express your anger there were a couple heated phone calls I was pretty well known for exerting my strong opinion about getting out to the farms but in the end I was floored for more did he says by the national pork producers council the lead lobbying group for the twenty three billion dollar pork industry they sent Lindquist a letter denying him access to the farms saying I know that you do not want any inadvertent negative consequences to farms as a result of this proposed on farms sampling it was signed by chief veterinarian lease wag strip the farmers that had been asked to provide samples declined to have samples taken on their farms and we support that decision why wouldn't the farmers want to find out where this started where the salmonella issue I break started why wouldn't you want to find out where it started by the time they wanted to go to the farm it was five months after the first case this point in the outbreak if it were found in the farms there was no way to tell if it started at the farm or if it started to plant in the truck and brought it back to the farm but Scott Lindquist said it wasn't too late for his investigation to get information that might slow the outbreak which was continuing I think they didn't want me to make the farms look bad and actually even offered to code the farms call them far may be seein diesel it wouldn't be something that would in my records with Reid even name the farm but it would give me the information to their eggs have this bacteria and I got absolutely none of that he had gone out of his way to assure you and the farmers that he wouldn't even name them what the farmers were concerned about was the discussion that in his plan they wanted to go to the other plans that the those farmers send pics to exactly and those farms could be easily identified just by their state of origin when we actually is waxed and to help us visit a hog farm she raised a surprising concern yeah I secure security if I were to go to a pig farm is a veterinarian I'll take a shower of shower him and use shampoo so I don't carry any diseases in the barn what if we agreed to sanitize ourselves to the ultimate degree go through all the guidelines you just described could we get would you take us on to a farm you know I I am not a farmer I would have to talk to farmers our communications fruitful would have to determine you know if they can find somebody willing and will will go off with any guidelines any shampooing anything you want us to do I can see if they can make that happen and I'd say that's the best I can do it didn't happen we never got permission to go on a farm but the council didn't give us this footage it wasn't just honest even federal inspectors have trouble getting on farms they are not allowed on the farm to look for bacteria that make people sick with out the farmers permission we have the black box of what's happening on the farm right to we we don't have a way of tracing tainted products all the way back to the farm we just don't we don't track that we don't keep the records doctor lance price is a microbiologist at George Washington University and a leading expert in drug resistant bacteria and so that's like a big pile of someone else so pretty much here in his lab price and his team test grocery store meat for antibiotic resistant bacteria as part of an ongoing study so with these these bacteria we consume them with the need those bacteria than get into our system and a cause infections then the infections because they're already resistant to antibiotics the doctors don't have any antibiotics to treat those infections but can you cook these pathogens out of pork you can the problem is that when you bring that package into your house you're bringing a package of raw package of meat when you open that up you've now just potentially released bacteria pathogens potentially drug resistant pathogen in your kitchen I mean you don't hear that much about people getting salmonella or whatever yeah I mean so the heel each year there outbreaks of of drug resistant infections the poor council says the United States pork production system yields the safest highest quality pork available in U. S. pork producers and here to rigorous government regulations farmers started using antibiotics decades ago not only to fight disease but to make animals grow faster with less food their use increased as farms got larger today most
