    Antibiotic-resistant E. coli more frequent in kosher chicken: study 

    • Kosher raw chicken was twice as often found to have antibiotic-resistant E. coli as conventional chicken in a study funded by Northern Arizona University.

      Researchers screened E. coli isolates from 213 samples of raw chicken drumsticks purchased between April and June 2012 from 15 retail outlets in New York City. The chicken was purchased from supermarkets, butcher shops, specialty stores and food distributors.

      The samples were marketed as conventional, organic, kosher and raised without antibiotics under multiple brands. The E. coli isolates were tested for resistance to 12 common antibiotics.

      "Kosher chicken had the highest frequency of antibiotic-resistant E. coli, nearly twice that of conventional products, a result that belies the historical roots of kosher as a means to ensure food safety. These results indicate that production methods influence the frequency of antibiotic-resistant E. coli on poultry products available to consumers," the study authors concluded.

      The frequency of antibiotic-resistant E. coli tended to be only slightly lower for chicken raised without antibiotics, they said. Organic chicken was found to be statistically indistinguishable from conventional products that have no restrictions.

      Across the entire data set, resistance to cefazolin was most common (41.3 percent), followed by ampicillin (31.5 percent), tetracycline (30.4 percent) and ampicillin sulbactam (19.6 percent). Some resistance was detected for cefoxitin, (12.5 percent) and gentamicin (10.9 percent).

      The research was presented at a meeting of the Society for Microbiology in May.
